The Kind To Apply

If a soil contains free acid, the amount of calcium

needed is definite. The form of lime that can supply the need in that

particular field at least expenditure of money and trouble is the one

to be selected. A ton of stone-lime, or pulverized lime, can correct as

much acid as 2640 pounds of hydrated lime or 3570 pounds of pulverized

limestone, if all the original material was pure.

In other words, if the value of a given weight of pulverized limestone

is placed at 100, the value of the same weight of hydrated lime would

be 132 and the value of stone-lime would be 180, when each was finely

divided and distributed throughout the surface soil.
