It is never too early to apply lime. It takes time for lime to breakdown and begin adjusting the pH. The more important question is; do you really need lime and the only accurate way to answer that question is to have your soil tested. Soil testing can be done through our office for five dollars. If you have tested and you know the quantity then application should take place as soon as trucks can get over the field without creating compaction.
