did you tell them what type grass you were trying to grow? if you test again,include in your sample a sheet that says what your trying to do and they will give you recommendations. thats what the soil test is for,but if you dont tell them they cant recommend anything.

 Re: No Till Lime in reply to jackinok, 10-07-2012 18:31:19  
jackinok has told you right. Lime varies across the country in regard to its neutralizing ability. What you need to know is the EFFECTIVE NEUTRALIZING MATERIAL valuie that your local lime contains on a "per ton" basis. "Most" soil tests will give the the amount of "pounds" of lime that you need to bring your soil up to a certain level based upon what you want to grow. IF, you know the ENM value, you simply divide the pounds needed by the ENM value and that gives you the total tons needed. For example, if your test calls for 718 pounds of lime and your lime tests out at 359 pounds of ENM then you need 2 tons total per acre. Your lime supplier can tell you the ENM value of their lime. I don't know where you are located nor do I know who did your soil test, but they should be able to give you this information. It's odd that the test results didn't contain recommendations.
