That was my concern, how do you consolidate a ton of lime into a gallon jug and get a long lasting effect.

Of course a liqiud will not last a long as lime because it takes lime so long to start working. Apply ph. control once per growing season is enough for results.

Okay spend $40 per acre per year for "Ph control" or spend $40 per acre for 3-5 years for granualized lime which is also spread and delivered for you. Seems like a no brainer to me.

"Ph control" works for a shorter period of time, costs the same, and you have to apply the product yourself. Please explain the benefits as I am failing to see any associated with this product, except in really hard to get to places.

You don't and this stuff does not even remotely compare to lime and has been proven fairly ineffective.

The advantage is you dont have to haul lime(if you do it yourself) and you dont have to wait a year to see results. The product is designed for foodplots which are often to hard for a spreader to get to . Now if your just putting out lime on a pasture thats different, but spraying a couple gallons sounds easier than hauling lime all day. INSTANT RESULTS!! can lime do that.

You don't have to wait a year to get good results from lime, period.

I agree with the isolated plots, but in that case pelletized lime is not that expensive and much more effective.

If this stuff was so good, then why did everyone quit using it and why do folks continue to use granualized lime? Because it works.

This stuff works because I use and have customers who use it including farmer of the year in ARK. The largest sod farmer around loves it. Maybe the folks you know tried something different. I know it may not be the best product for everyone but it does work. Be glad to send you a sample but sounds like you have your mind made up. You dont have to use the product every year just until your desired pH. is reached.

This is getting good...Was this product developed for sod initially or general farming?

This product was developed for PH. control and could be used anywhere ph. control in soil is needed. Do you have stock in or work for the local limestone company? I'm sure we didn't have over 2.8 million in sales by selling products that didn't work and able to stay in business for over 11 years.
