Lime isn't everything, but everything is nothing without lime!
Especially when it comes to field hygiene, active soil life and decomposition of crop residues by providing a good supply of lime are very important. To obtain maximum yields, wheat is sown early, but this significantly increases the risk of eyespot, rhizoctonia, DTR and fusarium infections.

These pathogens can be combated with good straw management and a fast rotting process, because straw residues are the basis for fungal infections.
In the light of the amendments to fertilisation regulations, the objective must also be to ensure that the highest possible proportion of applied nutrients is absorbed by the cultivated plants and that this is manifested in yield. Insufficient liming leads to suboptimal provision of crucial macro- and micro-nutrients, which means that the nutrients are not efficiently utilised. For productive liming, an up-to-date soil analysis (not older than three years) is particularly valuable. To further increase the benefits of the soil analysis and make it more informative, site-specific approaches can also be used – AGRAVIS NetFarming has gathered useful knowledge in this manner.
