Benefits of 2.5 Grids

• Allows more value from your fertilizer dollars
• Build up low fertility acres through VRT
• Maximize high fertility acres through VRT
• Apply Lime only to acres where it is needed as determined on a 2.5 acre basis
• Saves on cost of Lime (often enough to pay for soil testing)
• Applying Lime to high pH acres will not only cost more money, but will also cause higher Alkaline tests than you started with; which may cause additional yield losses.
