Two branded lime lines are launched

TWO branded lime products are being launched by British Sugar. Limex 45 and Limex 70 are mainly calcium carbonate, but include small amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous and magnesium. The products, residues from sugar extraction, are long-lasting and fast acting, says the company.

Limex 45 is produced by settlement so has a higher water content than Limex 70, a pressed product. Price reflects that – the former is expected to cost about £1.20/t ex-works, the latter £3.40/t.

Farmers should contact their nearest sugar factory for details, says British Sugar.
