Got my samples in the other day.

Thanks to a lot of back breaking work by myself and other members for the last 3 summers with shovels..................

My perennial fields have a freakin 6.7ph!!!!!!!!! Three years ago, they were like 4.7 and 5.1, ect. Three years ago, a lot of these fields were under inches of bark, limbs and pine needles. Thank goodness for the box blade and tractor. lol

My other fields were 5.8 or there about and the farm fields were also 5.8. Called for no lime this year. COurse, we limed the pee out of the fields on the lease part back in early summer.

My lowest was 5.3 on the long road. Guess I'll plant wheat and rape there and pray, although I suspect something will grow there now.

Wheat would probably be the best bet. We have had overly acidic fields for the past few years as we did not get enough lime on them however that said the wheat always seemed to do the best. I put out over 23ooo #'s of lime this year on about 12 or 13 fields. Should be a major improvemt the next check.

ALSwamper how much lime did you have to put on the fields that were 4.7 to 5.1 ph. Did you spread it with shovels or did you use some kind of spreader. I wish my fields were 6.7ph, that's great.
