A CONVENIENT TIME FOR LIMING. Lime should be applied simply to keep the soil in good healthy condition, and it is imma- terial at what point in the rotation it is applied. A convenient time to put it on is before ploughing the clover ley for wheat, but it would do equally well worked in for the roots. Any time of the year is equally effec- tive for arable land, those periods when the land is bare being most convenient, though dressings up to 10 cwt. per acre may be given as top-dressings without injury to young corn. Grass land, often in need of lime, is best dressed between November and February, but small dressings could be given even later. There is this point always to remember with regard to land deficient in lime. No manurial dressing can exercise its full benefit unless the land contains enough lime to keep it in healthy condition for the working of the soil bacteria, and that applications of Hme on such soils, though they may produce little imme- diate effect on the crop to which they are applied, will pay in the increased results from subsequent dressings of manure. The rule for the use of lime should be little and often, it being a great mistake to apply a large dressing and expect it to last for several years.
