Mill Lime consists of calcium carbonate that is converted from quick lime in a Maine Paper Mill's kiln. Mill Lime can be spread with typical fertilizer spreading equipment.
With a calcium carbonate equivalence of 98%, Mill Lime is a high potency, highly reactive agricultural liming agent. Mill Lime has a moist, fine texture and provides an immediate pH benefit to soil.
Mill Lime is spread through standard rear discharge or slinger manure spreaders at rates of 1.8 tons per acre. Available in Central Maine.
An application rate of 2.1 tons/acre is equivalent to the liming value of two tons of commercial lime. Actual application rate should be based on soil analyses and crop(s) to be grown.
