lncreased Spent Lime Usage in Southern Minn
Affirmed by University/Co-op Research Results
The spreading of spent lime (more-technically known as Precipitated Calcium Carbonate, or PCC) on upcoming sugarbeet fields has really taken off during the past decade among Upper Midwest beet growers. Along with increasing pH and influencing the soil nutrients, the spent lime has been demonstrated to reduce the impact of Aphanomyces and Rhizoctonia root rot in infested fields.
