This test is offered to ag-lime producers and others who want to evaluate the quality of liming materials. There are three analyses performed on agricultural liming materials (ALM) to determine the Effective Neutralizing Power (ENP). These analyses are

  1. Purity or Total Neutralizing Power,
  2. Particle size, percent passing through 8, 20 and 60 mesh sieves, and
  3. Moisture content.

MDA Sampling Requirements

Please see the Minnesota Department of Agriculture's sampling requirements webpage. Information on the entire Ag Liming Materials program can be found here.

Notice for Quicklime Samples:

For quicklime samples, please include an MSDS and check the appropriate box on our submission form. This makes our technicians aware of any additional safety hazards and may also improve the accuracy of your results. Also make sure to comply with any necessary requirements for the shipment of these samples.
