Pelletized Lime Versus Ag Lime

The main differences between pelletized lime and Ag lime is the consistency of the limestone and how the limestone is spread. Agricultural lime is a crushed limestone that is used for large agricultural applications.  However, pelletized lime is small pellets of limestone made for smaller agricultural uses. Agricultural lime can be spread more quickly but it requires specialty spreaders to evenly distribute it. On the other hand, pelletized lime can easily be spread by hand to a small area of land.

Pelletized Lime Vs. Powdered Lime

Again the main differences between these two types of limestone are their consistencies and application processes. Powdered lime is limestone that is created when limestone rock is ground into a fine powder. Applying powdered limestone can be much more difficult than applying pelletized lime because of this consistency. Powdered lime can cause a lot of dust, unlike pelletized lime which can be a problem during the spreading process. While powdered lime has some great uses, if you are looking for a limestone that applies easily and breaks down nicely, pelletized lime is your best option.

Stop Wasting Fertilizer – Use Pelletized Lime

Fertilizer loses its effectiveness in acid soils. Up to 1/3 of fertilizer is wasted if the soil pH is 5.5 or less. Using fertilizer itself contributes to soil acidity. After three years of spreading fertilizer with no limestone applications, a soil pH can drop under a 6.0 level. When soil pH is controlled, fertilizers can work efficiently to provide long lasting, deep green lawns and high yield gardens.
