Disking in the Lime
Limestone was spread throughout most of the farm a couple of weeks ago. Limestone adds PH to the soil and makes the fertilizers more efficient.
Lime is also proven to be a simple and cost-effective way to counter the harsh conditions created by rising acidity. Applications of Ag Lime are a reliable way to keep your soil healthy and high-yielding.
A common practice is to disk (burry the lime into the soil) soon after the application. As shown in the video, we disk the ground to work in the lime into the soil. We will return back to these fields about a week prior to planting and plow the fields. We will then take a field cultivator and level the plowed ground to form a perfect planting bed.
