Acid soils easily cured

SOILS made more acid by the exceptionally wet spring and summer can have their pH level quickly boosted by applying fine-particled Limex 45 and Limex 70, says British Sugar.

The firms team of 10 soil testers has found more acid patches in fields than usual this year, says spokesman Andy Spetch. A £2m investment at Bury St Edmunds means four plants now make Limex products, with BS making the material widely available through a network of merchants. &#42
