Abstract
Correcting low soil pH is an important part of growing agronomic crops. In South Carolina, most soils are naturally acidic and agricultural fields may become more acidic over time due to nitrogen fertilizer application. Liming the soil is necessary if the soil pH needs to be raised for ideal crop growth. It is important for agricultural growers to make informed decisions on the best liming material to purchase and understand what value they are getting. This publication aims to answer the following question for growers: How can I compare different lime analyses to determine what material is best for my crops and what is the best value economically?
