11-Calculating Lime Rates

2021-2-3 · Calcitic limestone contains about 40% calcium and 2% magnesium. Either material can be applied to increase the soil pH if the magnesium level is 50 ppm or more. If the soil pH is low and the magnesium level is less than 50 ppm, it may be advisable to use dolomitic lime and/or fertilizer materials containing some magnesium.

Should I use dolomitic or calcitic lime?

Dolomitic lime sources have the added benefit of increasing available magnesium. Choose the most economical material when is required. Do not apply gypsum or calcitic limestone to soils simply to increase soil calcium to magnesium ratios. If you choose a material low in magnesium, be careful to avoid magnesium deficiencies.

Should I use dolomitic or calcitic lime?

2015-12-17 · Calcitic lime is derived from deposits of primarily calcium carbonate. Dolomitic lime is derived from deposits of calcium carbonate combined with magnesium carbonate and contains much higher levels of magnesium. The key factors in deciding which of these types of lime should be applied to your soil is the soil pH and magnesium level.

Calcitic vs. Dolomitic Lime

Both calcitic lime and dolomitic lime are made primarily from pulverized limestone. The difference in the types of lime are determined by the chemical makeup and mineral deposits in the stone itself. Studies from the University of Wisconsin show that overall, there is little difference in the long-term effectiveness of both varieties of lime.

What is limestone? When gardeners talk about "lime" or "limestone," they mean either calcium carbonate (calcite or calcitic limestone), or calcium-magnesium carbonate (dolomite or dolomitic limestone). Of the two forms, dolomite is preferred as it provides magnesium as well as calcium. Both are mined from open-pit quarries, then crushed and ...
