BSK,

I think you either heard wrong information or got confused. The recommended rate of pelletized lime should be based on the neutralizing value of the lime and will probably be about 75 to 80% of that for average-quality bulk ag lime - not finely pulverized lime. For that, it would probably be the reverse, but it all depends on the quality (CCE) of the lime.


You may be right Greg. It may be the reverse.

I just purchased 40 bags of 40# pellitized lime at TSC. It went for $3 per bag, plus 5% off every 20 bags. Will be going today to get 40 or 50 more.

Check google on the ratio of pelletized lime vs ag lime. I believe on most applications its a 1-10 ratio. In other words, if it takes 2000lbs of ag lime then it only take 200lbs of pelletized lime. Pelletized lime doesn't last as long and has to be applied more often then ag lime also. You can google ratio of ag lime vs pelletized lime and its alot of information on there about it.

I finally broke down and after 2 years looking bought a used ground buster. Holds 1000 lbs . Works like a charm . Wish I had seen your post earlier. You can pull it behind your four wheeler depending on how big , how much you load it down . They just came out with one if I remember correctly holds 500 lbs. It was kinda pricey though!
