Lime On Alfalfa

What effect does putting lime on land have in holding moisture? Also,

will it pay to put it on a large field of alfalfa? The land is adobe. I

can get slaked lime for the hauling, distance being about five miles.

The lime will make the land more friable and, therefore, less disposed

to bake and lose moisture by evaporation. Alfalfa is hungry for lime and

is generally advanced by the application of it.
