Soils become acid or "sour" in several ways. Annual heavy rain
can wash nutrients out of the soil leaving behind acid forming elements.
Ammonium based fertilizers encourage a more acid soil, as does the natural
breakdown of organic matter. A slightly acid soil is preferred; important
growth elements become more available to plants, biological activity is
increased and good soil structure is promoted. But, when soils become
too acid, plant growth and yield suffer.
Why Lilly Miller Super Sweet?
Many types of lime can be used to correct this situation. The efficiency
of the liming material depends primarily on the fineness of the product.
Powdery hydrated lime acts quickly, but is difficult to handle. Coarse
lime spreads well, but take months or years to get to work.
How it Works
Super Sweet is ground very fine then made into an easy to handle and
apply prill. This prill quickly dissolves when water is applied.
