Campions Quarry Ltd produce quality, high calcium Agri lime.  100% of our lime has passed through a 2mm screen to produce a consistently fine product.

The benefits of smaller limestone particles are:

  • It dissolves in the soil much more rapidly
  • It reacts with the soil and raise pH much faster than coarse material.

Why use Agricultural Ground Limestone?
Many Irish soils are naturally acidic and our high rainfall makes surface acidity very common.

The benefits of lime application are:

  • Lime is a soil conditioner which corrects soil acidity by neutralising the acids in soils.
  • Microorganisms can thrive, breakdown plant and animal residues
  • Releases the elements necessary for healthy plant growth
  • Releases other nutrients such as phosphorous nitrogen and potassium
  • Improves soil structure due to increased microbiological and earthworm activity
  • Assists the growth of Clover
  • It is a natural, non-polluting fertiliser

Agricultural Ground Limestone has many names from ground limestone, Agri lime, Grolime and simply, lime.
