Has anyone used liquid lime instead of granular lime? I see it advertised on Craigslist and just wondering if it has any merit at all.

I have serval plots I want to do in clovers and soil tests recommended lime, not a lot, but some. Just curious if I spread granular lime now and donít disc it in will it absorb at all? I have plots in there now I donít really want to turn to a mud hole until I have to in the spring. But I want to give the best shot for getting a good crop as well...

The stuff advertised on craigslist is liquid calcium (Bio-Liquid Calcium), not lime.
Their claim " Calcium neutralizes soil acidity " is simply not true.

What's funny is one of their supposed endorsements comes from No Till Farmer.
In reality ---> No Till Farmer
Another supposed endorser is John Deere which they clearly do not endorse the product.

Powdered ag lime or pelletized lime is what you want.
Actual liquid lime is rarely cost effective considering 50% of it will be water so effective neutralizing factor is reduced per weight.

If it were me I'd spread the correct amount of pelletized lime now, yes it will slowly leach into the soil, when you disc or disturb top 2" - 4" to replant in spring it will still be viable & buffer as intended as long as you calculate application rate correctly.
