PH Testing

R&T continues to use the most reliable method of pH testing – mixing soil samples in the field with BDH indicator.

This testing is carried out by our fieldsmen, he will then provide a hand drawn map of the areas that are deficient in lime.

R+T also carry out fertiliser testing to provide results for P, K, Mg and Nitrogen levels in the soil.

 

Lime Products

R&T’s core business is correcting soil acidity through lime spreading. Depending on your location, this would be with screened limestone or chalk. However we also offer a range of other materials:

Magnesium Limestone: The perfect material for using on soils that are deficient in magnesium. Treating acidity and low Mg indices together, it is a one pass treatment for two problems.

Granulated Lime: Supplied by OMYA, comes in 600kg bags and is ideal for growers to spread themselves. Prilled – just as standard fertiliser – it enables growers to treat areas where bulk lime is not practicable.

Gypsum: Has many applications that include the improved friability of soils, the provision of sulphur and calcium as plant nutrients, the reduction of excess magnesium availability and the enhancement of skin finish in root crops. In addition, it has a proven value as an antibacterial treatment in cattle bedding.

Basic slag: Recognised as a ready supply of phosphate. Together with it’s neutralising value – equivalent to a tonne of lime – this can provide an additional benefit beyond micro elements.

Through our excellent network of UK quarry supplies, we can also supply aggregate suitable for driveways and hard standing areas.

Just call your nearest R&T contact for more details on any of the above products.
