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.

7000/8=875 lbs.

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?

If you want send me a PM with your email - I built a spreadsheet so you can input your soil test results and plot size - it outputs the P, K and Lime needed for your particular Soil Sample - which I assume was from one individual plot.

Wow...I think I'd try a sample in another location?

Shortstop. X2^^^^

Definitely on the high side, but not outrageous. What was the ph?
