Ultrafine lime or gypsum is preferred to conventional lime for its superior handling, ease of application and results. Ultrafine lime also achieves a more even and thorough application. This allows the calcium carbonate, the effective neutralising ingredient in limestone, to come into contact with and neutralise as much hydrogen in the soil as possible. Better coverage means that more hydrogen is neutralised or eliminated, which results in higher potential hydrogen (pH).
