Following pH readings done by his Thompsons’ representative - which confirmed that soil was outside the ideal range of 6-6.5 - Seamus Loughran decided to sow g-lime. With a suckler herd in Dunnamore, Cookstown Seamus decided that the application of g-lime would be the easiest method of raising the pH of his silage and grazing ground, as he could use his own tractor and sower to spread the lime when it suited him.
Applying lime effectively is something that has challenged farmers over the years. Lack of lime application has manifested in the countryside with pH levels sliding, resulting in poor swards of low yielding grasses and weeds. G-lime has proved its worth time and time again with farmers and growers alike realising how useful a product this is, following their purchase of it either directly from Thompsons or from their local Merchant. It is distributed with a traditional fertiliser spreader when it suits both weather conditions and time constraints, allowing farmers to visibly see the results on their valuable asset, land.
G-Lime, a registered trademark of Kilwaughter Lime, is a unique fast acting lime soil conditioner which is specially formulated to help manage soil pH - improving soil fertility while optimising crop and grass performance. G-lime is available exclusively through Thompsons who supply local merchants.
