Application in farming

Liming is the foundation for the success of fertilising as a whole.

Providing the soil with a sufficient supply of lime is the basis for all fertilising measures in farming.

One of the best-known effects of lime is its influence on soil reaction. Since every type of crop plant only thrives optimally at a certain pH value, lime is extremely important as a means of soil amelioration.

Providing the soil with a sufficient supply of lime is the basis for all fertilising measures in farming.

One of the best-known effects of lime is its influence on soil reaction. Since every type of crop plant only thrives optimally at a certain pH value, lime is extremely important as a means of soil amelioration.

In the long term, the principal function of liming in the framework of fertilising as a whole is to optimally control the chemical, physical and biological characteristics of the soil. It is an indispensable measure that must be performed regularly and without which it is impossible to improve soil fertility and constantly increase yields per hectare.


Since our farmland is exposed to constant acidification, there is a need for a regular calcium input to achieve an optimum soil reaction (pH value) and improve the soil (nutrient availability).

The lime status of the soils in the Federal Republic of Germany is far from satisfactory.

Liming should be performed not according to rough, rule-of-thumb figures, but in a targeted manner on the basis of a soil analysis.

The CaCO3 (CaO) content and the reactivity (speed of action) are decisive criteria when assessing lime fertilisers.
