Soil acidity is neutralized and calcium and magnesium nutrients are replenished with proper liming.  The effectiveness of other soil nutrients, including phosphorus, nitrogen and manganese, increase significantly when liming practices are used, and helps to maintain a healthy pH level in the soil.  With a proper soil pH, fertilizers and herbicides work more effectively, increasing crop productivity and saving money.

Although liming can be effective before tilling and planting in the spring, the best times to apply lime to your fields are fall and early winter.  This allows time for the distribution of nutrients throughout the root system.  Freezing and thawing also aids in the distribution of the limestone.
