What else would you use if not limestone?  I know of no other product that
is as cheap to use as lime.  No one uses anything else in south jersey.  You
see the lime truck in field after field around here in the early spring.

Thanks, Bill!  I guess I need to study the relationships that you 
mentioned between K, Ca, etc. more.  I know that to change the pH with 
limestone alone would more than break my bank, which is partly why I 
haven't done it before now.  I will check around and see what I can find 
from the local farmers.
