Agricultural Lime (Aglime)
How our products are used in the agricultural industry.
Mill Creek’s aglime is a high purity source of calcium and magnesium carbonate for soil building, acidic soil neutralization and fertilizer amendment. For most crops, the optimum soil pH for maximum plant growth and fertilizer efficiency is in the range 6.0 – 7.0. Liming soils to this range can dramatically increase crop and forage yields and also improve the performance of certain herbicides. Aglime is also a cost effective, direct source of Ca and Mg which are essential in plant cell wall formation and chlorophyll production. Soils need to be regularly limed as growing and harvesting plants removes alkalinity from the soil. Mill Creek produces two grades of aglime.
