Better check your sources when looking at these things, lots of misinformation out there. Yes there can be a difference but 10-1 is for a short term fix of a year or so. Its based on the neutralizing value and others factors I wont go into because its very indepth. The ag lime Ive used has a NV of 67%. Ive seen pellet lime with a NV of 90%. So, in that case You could use less pellet lime but you would still be around 1500 pounds per acre of pellet compared to 2000 pounds of ag lime per acre. Effective neutralizing value and all other kinds of info should be on the bag.

I have never considered pelletized lime so know nothing about how it compares to standard agricultural lime. I do know what I paid for ag lime last year though. I got 12 tons and it cost me $22 per ton. The rock quarry quoted me $14/ton to bring it out and dump it in a pile in my field and something like $12/ton if I came and picked it up at the quarry.

You can Google ag lime vs pelletized lime and click on:What is the difference between ag lime and pelletized lime...and it'll tell you the ratio I quoted above as well as I had mentioned they recommend you reapplying each year when using the pelletized lime. But I can tell you this, if you plan to use a small spreader powdered lime doesn't pass through the small openings in the spreader very well. Pelletized lime may not be the best or the lowest maintenance lime to put out but if you can't get a truck back there it may be the best option.
