I posted this in the open discussion forum but I think I should have put it here. I'm looking for a place to buy lime in bulk and have them spread it for me. My property is just north of Hughes Springs and I think I will need about 10 tons of lime. Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.

Most east Texas land, due to the proliferation of pine trees, is acidic in nature- generally between a pH of 5.0-6.0. In order for plants, such as those grown for food plots, to grow well they need to have a pH close to 7.0 (neutral) in order for them to be able to use all the nutrients in the soil for them to thrive. If your soil is not at the proper pH then all the fertilizer in the world won't do your food plots much good.

Lime increases the PH of acidic soil, provides a source of calcium and magnesium for plant life, improves nutrient uptake & can improve water penetration in acidic soils.

Kroger has limes on sale right now. You might have to call in advance to get 10 tons.

If you have ever put out powdered lime by hand you will go with pelletized every time....

Pelletized lime just takes so much longer to have an effect...but ease of spreading is a big component here.

I'm afraid if I use that kind of Lime, I will also have to provide my bucks with Corona's. Could be to costly for me.

Your county ag extension will should have a list of sources for you. They cannot recomend anybody, but they can give you some direction. Ideally, you should walk into the office with a map of your land and talk face to face with one of their people. The one here in Tyler gives out all sorts of brochures and will come out to your land and walk it with you too. They have the soil sample boxes there that you fill up and mail off to get analyzed.

I googled Cass County Ag Extension and got this.

Following - I have one area where I've tried oats, sunflowers, winter peas, and rye, but they never really get established. The only thing, other than weeds, that really grows in this area is wild onion. I have been told that wild onions thrive in acidic soils, so guessing I have a ph problem. Next step is to get soil test.

I have a spreader, and since this is only an acre, will probably try to do myself.

And by the way, when I mow this particular field, it smells like a hamburger stand with all of the onions. I am always starving when I get off the tractor!
