Agricultural lime is a soil amendment made from pulverized limestone. The primary active component is calcium carbonate. Lime improves soil quality in a variety of ways:
- Increases the pH of acidic soils
- Provides a source of calcium for plants
- Improves uptake of essential plant nutrients
- Improves water penetration for acidic soils
The table below shows the 16 essential soil nutrient elements.
