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.

Coastal PlainLow: 0 - 30 lbs/acre Medium: 31 - 60 lbs/acre High: >60 lbs/acre
Piedmont Low: 0 - 60 lbs/acre Medium: 61 - 120 lbs/acre High: >120 lbs/acre
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.
