Look, Assess, Choose, Execute and Evaluate

Unfortunately there is no silver bullet when it comes to liming - the challenges and solutions are as many and varied as the properties that they occur on. If you’ve never really considered a lime management plan before, here are 5 simple steps that we can help you follow and ensure that you’re getting the best program in place from the get-go.

1. Look (Before you lime)

Before you begin it’s vital to know what you’re up against and what your soil needs in order to perform at its best. Our detailed soil investigations can provide essential information on pH strata levels and identify the physical characters and constraints that are going to guide the rest of the process.

Soil & Plant Visual Assessment

2. Assess

Work with us to formulate a proper lime management plan that takes into account both the data collected from the soil and your intended farm management practices, unique challenges and desired outcomes.

3. Choose

Taking all this into account, we can then help you choose which Optima products best meet your needs.

4. Execute

Access to our advice and expertise will ensure that you’re able to properly execute your lime management plan. 

5. Evaluate

We don’t think that our job is over once we’ve sold you the goods and you’ve walked out the door. Our visual plant assessment and in season and post harvest soil investigations will ensure that you’re on the right track and enable us to update or amend your lime management plan should the need arise.
