Management zones for more efficient liming strategies
SoilCares is often confronted with questions from farmers and advisors on how to optimize their lime application. It seems that soil or crop specific liming recommendations are often lacking. Sometimes lime containing fertilizers are not available or only at high costs and moreover, the acid neutralizing capacity (ANC) of the available fertilizers (organic and inorganic) is unknown. In this new blog dr. Peter van Erp, Director of SoilCares Research, discusses how the SoilCares concept of routine soil testing can contribute to more efficient liming strategies.
