Lime and Limestone in Agriculture

Graymont produces a wide range of products used in the agriculture sector. These products are used primarily as soil conditioners and as a vital mineral for the animal feed sector.


As soil conditioners, lime and limestone products are vital ingredients in any fertilizer programme and make a significant contribution to healthy and productive soils. They are used to manage soil pH, assist with crop establishment and manage issues such as aluminum toxicity. High magnesium dolomite products are available from some regions across the Graymont network.

Graymont manufactures a wide range of crushed and screened pulverized limestone for the animal feed sector. Products are available that are utilized across several livestock types including swine, beef, dairy, sheep (in some regions) and poultry.
