Agricultural Lime Technical Specifications

The two most important aspects of agricultural lime are the chemical makeup and the fineness of the ground limestone. The calcium carbonate equivalent (CCE) or total neutralizing value (TNV) compares the chemistry of a particular quarry’s stone with the neutralizing power of pure calcium carbonate, effective neutralizing value (ENV).

Minimum CaO 40.6%
Minimum MgO 13.1%
Minimum Total Oxides 53.6%
CACO3 Equivalent 105.0%
ENV 97.5%

Besides chemical makeup, the other most important aspect of agricultural lime is the fineness of the limestone. The objective is to put the smallest particles of limestone possible into the soil so carbonates can react with the acids.  The smaller the particles, the faster the reaction.

This material is sold only by the ton.
