  • UNIFORM LIME AND FERTILIZER SPREADING

    agricultural fields tested in Maryland had a pH of 6.0 or lower. In some counties as high as 62 percent of the samples tested had a pH of 6.0 or lower indicating a great need for lime. It is on these low pH fields that the greatest amount of damage can occur due to non-uniform spreader distribution patterns.
