The application of agricultural lime involves the use of a
specially equipped barge when the pond or lake already has
water in it. Agricultural lime (also known as ag lime), can be
bought in bulk and shipped by dump truck (either tri-axle or
18-wheeler), to your property. Once application begins, the
lime is loaded onto the barge by a front-end loader. The barge
then travels throughout the pond spreading the lime over the
entire pond bottom. The purpose of applying the lime over
the entire bottom is to neutralize the acidity of the soil. This
process stabilizes the pH of the water which promotes a
healthier environment for aquatic life and allows fertilizer
applications to be effective.
We are equipped to handle lime application in an efficient
