We had a couple of truck loads spread last week, and I was wondering if it should be cut in, or just let nature take its course?

It will work into the ground faster if you disk it in. Remember it does take some time for lime to work itself into the ground, thats why peletized lime takes longer.

Lime will work its way down on top of the ground, thats where the peletized lime comes in, but like i said that takes awhile.

Arrow flinger,.. all the research i have read up on suggest pelletized lime will act quicker and leach quicker due to its much smaller particles of lime formed to make a pellet. BUT,.. the pelletized will not last as long due to this same process.

Lime should be disced in for quicker results. BUT,. its not necessary. Thats why drilling seed has become so popular. No need to break the ground as often when you can drill. Most farmers around here just lime and fertilize right after they spray to kill the grasses and weeds. SO,.. leaching will occur.

Additionally, I have learned that the best compromise is to put down half the lime, disc, and then put down the rest. Of course, if you call a truck in, this procedure is not at all convenient for the operator. Also, as was mentioned, with no-till practices, this isn't even considered. It will eventually leach down.

If you're going to disc, perhaps a shallow discing will work well.

It will leach on it's own but disking will get it into the soil deeper. Generally speaking bulk lime has about a 6 month reaction time so Fall plots should have already have been limed or at the very least limed now.
