View FoodPlot QuestionsCategory: PlotStart QuestionsConfused about how much to apply
Carl Holland asked 6 years ago

In this Q&A, you do not recommend applying more PlotStart than is recommended, which is 2.5 gal/acre.  But, in further reading from your website, you state that if soil is very acidic, you should go ahead and double the amount.  My ph is 4.6, and I just bought enough to apply 5 gal/acre.  Is that wrong?

Carl,

We simply have that text to avoid the misunderstanding that applying more is always better. PlotStart should be applied based off lime suggestions based off soil samples at a rate of 2.5 gallons of PlotStart to 1 ton of lime per acre. At your pH, doubling the amount is correct.
