applying lime

Postby huntall » Thu Feb 03, 2011 7:29 pm

How do yall apply lime? Do yall rent the pull behind buggy from the co-op? If not how do yall do it? I am going to get a soil test but I have 2 places that I cant get a buggy to the location. How would you lime the hard to get to places with ag lime? I can get a tractor to it but I think it is to rough to get a buggy there. I have used the pelletized lime but Im looking to fix the soil not a temporary fix.

3 point hitch spreader on a tractor will do the trick in the places you can't get a buggy to...

Yeah, but the volume of lime he most likely will need would take forever. Can they not get a spreader truck in there?

ITs 1 and a 1/2 acre plots with narrow downhill uneven road. This is why in the past I just used the pelletized lime. Like I said I have not done soil test yet so dont know how much will be needed on 1 1/2 acer plot. Just trying to figure out a way to use ag lime or have to go back with the pelletized.

Got ya, hate to see what my soil sample is gonna say but it will be a plus in the long run. No more than what you are doing, a decent size tractor and a buggy ought to do the job.

yeah we rent a buggy from co op....one of our neighbors in a high fence used his truck one time on steep hills to pull a buggy and i had to go help pull him out...was a mess....so dont attempt it with a small tractor.....if you cant do that youll have to use the peletized lime

Gonna have to figure this one out too. Did you see the soil test on my post? Got some figuring out to do big time. If I gotta use pelletized bag line I'm in trouble. Gonna have to figure something out for sure. If my new neighbor would let me use one of his roads it would be great but I haven't met him yet. Might be a good way to meet the neighbors by begging I guess. So much for first impressions.

I would go talk to your neighbor and see if he would let you have access to your food plot. Pellitized lime is over $200 a ton vs $50 a ton for ag lime.

WOW, guess I never really looked at it being that much of a price difference. Might have to go do some sweet talking. I'm pretty sure I can get to it easier from his side or at least I hope I can.

There is a place in Oxford next to Hunter Hollow, It is a gov office . I'll try to get you a number .

But, you will need to buy a bulk load of AG lime from someone else .
