Guide to Liming
Lime should be used at a rate of 200-750 kg/ha.(roughly equates to 200-750 lb/acre). Application to marginal areas by hand, or over larger areas from a boat using a shovel to ensure as even a distribution as possible in the late winter/early spring.
This process is NOT to be confused with the use of crushed limestone which is used in new, nutrient poor, sand and clay workings in order to 'kickstart' invertebrate populations by directly supplying calcium.
