Agway in Clearfield sells.....
hydrated lime -7.95 per bag

pelletized-4.79 per bag

pulverized-2.79 a bag.

Is one lime better then the other?Obviously pulverized is the cheapest.
I like the pulverized.

Well, you COULD use hydrated, but ya couldn't plant anything for a while.

The pulverized is dusty to work with but other than that, go for it.

Pelletized is nothing more than pulverized with a "binder" in it so it forms a pellet.

Oh gosh, I forgot, the hydrated, from my Agway days, is hard on the lungs when inhaled. That stuff was a pain to handle. But, you can use it on soil, just needs time to leach into the soil and become less toxic to plants. It will burn stuff.

Is there a source for ag lime up there?

Three weeks ago, I bought 1500 lbs of ag lime in Tioga County and trailered it over to Potter and spread it with a flat bladed shovel. Did not take long and it did a nice job.

Get hi Calcium lime no matter what you do tho.

Well not ag lime but a brick and block place sells lime.Not sure if that's the same stuff?
What about the pulverized?Does that act quickly?That might be what the block place has.

Yes, pulverized acts pretty derned fast.

Also, keep in mind, it begins as soon as it hits the soil, so, if you plant a perennial right now, it improves the soil as the crop grows.
