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.

Benefits

The pellet size, strength and reactivity of G-Lime, have all been improved with increased efficiency in the manufacturing process resulting in dust reduction. But one of the main benefits of G-lime still remains, the ease of application. As it can be spread at any time of year using a conventional spreader, it offers the flexibility of time. So when it suits the producer G-lime can be spread, this means it must be available to buy at a time that suits the producer.

Ordering

Within 72 working hours of ordering – where possible – G-lime is available on farm direct from Thompsons’ mill, Belfast. In a minimum of six tonne lots G-lime is the simple way of making sure farmers can avail of the benefits of lime where and when it is needed. Typically applied at 3cwt to the acre, which will cost little more than one bag of fertiliser, farmers are seeing real financial and performance benefits by applying G-lime.

Applying lime effectively is something that has challenged farmers over the years. Lack of lime application has manifested in the countryside today 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 spread 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.
