Can I lime over plants - 03/26/19 12:06 PM
I've got some foodplots that still have oats and winter pea's growing in them. Can I put down lime over the plants or will that kill them. If so I will just plow them under and then lime.

Lime, see if they die and then plow over them. That way you incorporate the lime into the soil as you should and you give the plants a chance to continue....
I would suspect the winter plants will be browning out within the next month anyway, so not big deal

Sure you can spread lime anytime, powdered ag lime or pelletized?
Heavy application of powdered ag lime may coat the leaves & cut down or off photosynthesis.
Pelletized lime no problem at all.
Are you sure you need lime?
Taken soil samples & have results as to how much is needed?
