Grower groups band together on acidity
Plain text source:
Grower groups band together on acidity.. Factors being considered include which lime products to use, freight costs, application rates, whether to incorporate lime, how to best incorporate lime, lime quality (including neutralising value and particle distribution), effects on nutrient availability and subsequent fertiliser costs, labour costs and machinery costs... The Liebe Group is assessing the effectiveness of lime sand, dolomite, liquid lime and granular lime used in combination with different incorporation methods (including mouldboard ploughing, spading, deep ripping, grizzly discs and offset discs)...
