Agricultural Limestone

Home/Agricultural Limestone

Yager Materials produces a high calcium agricultural limestone, also known as aglime, that can be shipped anywhere on the Ohio/Mississippi River and their tributaries.  Please contact us for test results, pricing, and delivery schedule.

The effects of agricultural limestone on soil are:

  • it increases the pH of acidic soil (the higher the pH the less acidic the soil); in other words, soil acidity is reduced and alkalinity increased
  • it provides a source of calcium and magnesium for plants
  • it permits improved water penetration for acidic soils
  • it improves the uptake of major plant nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) of plants growing on acid soils.
