WHY USE Ag Lime?
To create the foundation for a healthy lawn and agriculture crops establishing and maintaining proper soil pH which is the
foundation for a healthy green lawn and agriculture crops. Lawn and crops grows best at a soil pH between 6.5 and 6.9. Soil pH will
naturally decline over time due to excessive rain, acid rain, irrigation and soil erosion.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED Ag Lime?
If you have bare spots, excessive weeds, or your acreage is not as green as you would like it to be, you probably need an application of lime.
HOW TO APPLY Ag Lime?
Determine the area of acreage:
An easy way to do this is to walk the length of your area, figuring that one pace equals about 3 feet. Do the same with the width of the lawn. Multiply length by width to arrive at the
total square footage.
Apply one bag per 1,000 sq. ft. to maintain soil pH and two bags per 1,000 sq. ft. to correct acidic soils. Spreading the time: Spread uniformly with a drop spreader, by hand, shovel or rototiller. Lime’s particle size makes it easy to distribute
Application for new Lawn:
Apply Lime at the same rate as established lawns. After application, work the Lime into the soil to a depth of 4” to 6” before seeding or nodding.
Application for Flower and Vegetable Gardens:
Apply 25lbs per 100 sq. ft. or as indicated by soil testing.
The Benefits of NQ’s Ag Lime

2. Packaged in 40lb bags making it easier for farmers to carry around and work with.
3. Corrects the pH of acidic soils.
4. Supplies Ca (calcium) to high calcium crops.
5. Improves fertilizer efficiency, by increasing the uptake of nitrogen, potash, sulphur, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, copper, boron, zinc and molybdenum.
6. Improves soil structure, thus increasing micro and macro organism activity. There is reduction of crusting and clodding of heavy soils.
7. Reduces the need for costly, environmentally hazardous and toxic chemical fertilizers.
8. Due to its texture, can maintain proper pH for years.
