AgLime      Benefits of Correct Lime Levels Can't be Overstated!

Dry Lime Proper use of aglime is one of the most important management inputs in successful crop production. Excess soil acidity is a primary constraint to high, profitable yields and long-term soil productivity. Consider some of the benefits of a sound liming program:

Aglime improves soil physical, chemical and biological properties

Aglime improves symbiotic nitrogen (N) fixation by legumes

Aglime influences the availability of plant nutrients

Aglime reduces toxicities

Aglime improves the effectiveness of certain herbicides

Aglime supplies calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg) and other minerals.

Liming Improves Fertilizer Efficiency  (University of Minnesota)

Soil Acidity N P K Cost of Fertilizer Wasted
Extreme Acid 4.5 pH




$ 48.54 per acre

V Strong Acid 5.0 pH




$ 37.71 per acre

Strong Acid  5.5 pH




$ 25.11 per acre

Medium Acid 6.0 pH




$ 18.94 per acre

Neutral Acid 7.0 pH





It increases root proliferation and promotes earlier above-ground crop growth, improving nutrient and water uptake while protecting the soil from wind and water erosion. Aglime improves fertilizer nutrient efficiency by as much as 50% or more and boosts the effectiveness of certain herbicides. For all these reasons and more, farmers are wise to invest in a sound aglime program. Aglime will put more money in their pockets.

Liquid AgLime corrects soil acidity and supplies immediate calcium availability. It increases the availability of applied and residual phosphate and increases fixation of nitrogen by soil and plant organisms. It improves crop yields and the physical properties of soils while reducing the activity of toxic substances in the soil. It is designed for fall or early spring application.

Soil Sampling

One of the keys to growing a bin-busting crop begins with the soil sample. It is the starting point for a solid agronomy program. Dean will map your fields, organize and take soil samples for you. After the results are back, he will sit down with you to discuss a fertility plan based on the soil analysis. 

Benefit: The cost of soil sampling is credited back to your account when you purchase lime, fertilizer and or chemicals from BF&S. Ask Dean about Grid soil sampling.

Crop Scouting

Once spring planting is complete, it is time to evaluate the new corn and soybean plants growth and diagnose any potential weed or insect problems which could ultimately limit yields. Dean will visit your fields and make written evaluations of his findings to help you manage the growing crop.
