All set for the liming season

As usual at this time of year, we are getting set to play our part in keeping Kent’s fields and orchards nourished for next year’s crops.

From August onwards, we will be busy delivering lime to farmers across the county. Our chalk is dug from the extensive limestone deposits of the North Downs and then ground to a fine dust for even spreading.

The lime helps to maintain the pH of the soil to improve plant nutrient uptake and enhance soil biology and structure. Thousands of tonnes of lime are used in this way every year.
