Are you sure? Any way to post the report? Most of my reports recommend by the acre.

That's a fine recommendation and at 50Lbs/1000 sq. ft., you'll be fine. That is the most that you can apply at any given time so if you needed more, you'd have to do two separate applications.

I do a lot of soil testing out of our John Deere Landscapes Store and the majority of the PH levels in our soils are around 5.1-5.3. The lab usually recommends that people apply their lime at a rate of 65 lbs or more when the soil PH is this low. That means the customer should do two applications of lime per season.

Personally, after seeing all of these soil tests, I usually recommend to our "homeowner" customers that they should use one 50LB bag for each 1,000 sq. ft. Most people don't apply enough lime to do anything with the soil PH level.
