It’s a great feeling to know that you are the
master of your farmlands . . . that when you
treat your soil right, it will treat you right.
Taming is one of the most important factors in
keeping your soil in the highest productive
range. By raising the pH from a level below
6.0 to 6.5 or higher, you can expect to harvest
.8 mere tons of alfalfa per acre, with similar
increases for all other forage and cash crops.
