Ground conditions are very good in many parts of the country at present. This presents a great opportunity for getting a few loads of lime out this autumn.

With many fields closed up in the past week or two, now is an ideal time to spread lime on these fields.

When spreading compound fertiliser in a field which has a soil pH of 5.5 you are losing two thirds of the Phosphorus and one third of the Nitrogen due to fact that these nutrients are tied up in the soil and are not made available to the growing plant.
