Correcting the pH status of the soil by applying lime is a simple and effective way to increase grassland productivity.

Remedying pH can take months, and on very acidic soil may not be fully corrected in one season. Click to find out more about G-Lime granulated lime and how it can act to neutralise soil pH.
