**Recommendations:**

Recommended pH: | 6.0 to 6.5. If the pH is less than 6.0, see Lime Table B and the soil depth adjustment table that immediately follows the lime tables. | ||||||||

Nitrogen: | 9-18 pounds nitrogen (N) per 1000 square feet. Rate will depend on length of growing season, soil texture, and whether or not greens are overseeded. | ||||||||

Magnesium: | If soil test Mg level is low and lime is recommended, use dolomitic limestone.
| ||||||||

Other: | General Rule: Greens with heavy soil will require less N than those with high percentage of sand. |

**Comments:**

For established greens, apply up to 10 pounds limestone per 1000 square feet during the growing season and up to 20 pounds if dormant with a frequency of about every 4-6 months until the total limestone recommendation is reached.
