We added 400 lbs of SuperCal 98G in one strip. The farmer has a yield monitor and we weighed the strip. It was 20 bushels better than the field average. This was on soybeans.
When looking at the soil analysis it is not hard to predict such a response.
When half of the cationic nutrients are hydrogen, which isn't used for growth, it's no surprise that you would have a dramatic yield increase.
When I spoke to the farmer recently asking if he was liming this the rest of the field he astutly said "Yes, liming doesn't cost, it pays!"
