Mt Hutt Lime

Mt Hutt Lime is a new division of Harmer Earthmoving

We supply a wide range of Aglime and diary track from three quarries in the Methven/Mt Somers area. We're focused on delivering a quality product and test our product regularly to ensure we are delivering the right grade.

The benefits of using Aglime can include:

  • Improved nutrient availability to plants. This improves fertiliser responses
  • Improved pasture composition
  • Supplies plant available calcium supply
  • Increased clover performance resulting in increased nitrogen fixation
  • Encouragement of beneficial soil micro and macro organisms including casting earthworms. This enhances nutrient cycling and improves soil structure
  • Improved water holding capacity of soils. Improved drought tolerance
  • Increased capacity of soils to retain and exchange nutrients for plant growth
  • Increased dry matter production.
  • Decreased availability of metals such as aluminium and manganese

Mt Hutt Lime Quality & Effectiveness

We have four different types of agricultural limestone available with test results ranging from 90 - 97.45%. For a lower cost product with faster and slower releasing limes to change the speed you want the PH to rise. These range from a damp lime to an extremely dry lime for applications on windier days and also, an extremely fine to slightly more coarse product to change speed of reactions.
