WHAT IS RAPID LIME?
A fine quality granulated limestone that rapidly adjusts pH. A cost effective and high-performing alternative to conventional agricultural lime it is made from granules of finely ground limestone (<150 microns) which has been combined, in a unique process, with a water soluble organic binder to produce hard 2-5mm prills.
Liming is well understood to hold the key to improving crop growth & yields by limiting the adverse effects of high soil acidity ( low pH values). No matter what you are growing it will be improved from the application of Rapid-Lime to combat the deleterious effects of acid levels in the soil. These build up over time from rainfall leaching, the demands of growing crops, decomposition and nitrogen release - these will all serve to lower pH values and restrict valuable growth.

Understanding Ultra-Fine Particle Lime
When buying any Lime product Purity & Particle Size are two critical factors that will determine its efficiency and cost effectiveness in raising the soil pH on your farm.
For agricultural use, Lime is sold under many generalised descriptions that are relative to the particle size of the product. As Lime particle size is such a critical factor, it’s important to have an understanding of these general descriptions.
"When it comes to Lime the finer the particle size the and the higher the purity the better the results", Andrew de Lautour ©
