Thanks for the input.
I normally practice applying lime in the fall, after a soil test, but, in this instance the Ag soil specialist said the ph is so low (land used to be covered in pine saplings) that it's critical. He also said the pelletized lime will render faster results, especially if waterd in. No doubt, it will be a while before the full effect is rendered but, apparently in this case, drastic measures are called for.
I'm planting Cheyenne II bermuda, by the way, and the recommeded ph is around 6 - 7. At the moment, my ph is 4.89!!
