Chapter advisor Glenn Weber
Liming pays off in healthier soil,
better crops, stronger and more pro
ductive animals. In fact, it has been
estimated that each $1 invested in
limestone returns from $3 to $lO in
bigger and better yields.
Baker's agricultural limestone is your
best choice because you can use the
type that best fits the needs of your
land. Choose high calcium to sweeten
acid soil, raise pH and unlock vital
plant nutrients. Use high magnesium
to do all those jobs plus adding vital
magnesium. Both types prepare your
land to make full use of the fertilizers
you apply. Call your dealer or Baker.
