ALFAI.FA Alfalfa needs more lime than any other common forage crop. All moils in the eas exeent thorse od' limestone soils, such as those in the Shenandah Val!ey, are often .acid at the surface and need lime. Except f.or the soils of the Pacific slope in the most softs west c,f the ninety-fifth meridian do not need liming. The f:crm of lime makes little difference provided it supplies enough calcium :oxide. Soils that have not previo.usly been limed ---ill usually require at least 1 ton of burned lime or its equivaent to the acre.
