pH Testing and Lime Application

Lime is the material that neutralizes soil pH. Proper pH allows the forage that has been planted to maximize the use of nutrients available in the soil. You can think of proper pH as a plant having a larger straw to drink through. By allowing the nutrients in the soil to be more available to the plant, you can expect better results from your food plot.

Reed & Hoppes offers lab certified soil tests. A soil test allows us to diagnose your soil and apply the proper amounts of lime and fertilizers that may be needed.
