Calculating Fertilizer and LimeContributors to this thread:

Got soil sample back, it says I need 7000lbs of lime per acre. I'm only planting 1/8 of a acre so how do I calculate to get right amount for my 1/8 acre.

Must be pretty acidic
typically you would not add that much lime at one time, I would do two different applications at 437.5. You could also you palletized lime at a lower rate.
7000 pounds per acre is a little high, but not too bad. We get calls for much higher amounts for row crop ground in Iowa. I'd guess buffer ph must have been in mid 5's?
