Under what soil condition do you think a farmer would treat the soil of his fields with quick lime (calcium oxide) or slaked lime (calcium hydroxide) or chalk (calcium carbonate)?

Dear Student

When the soil is acidic in nature, the farmer would add quick lime (CaO) or slaked lime (Ca(OH)2) or chalk (CaCO3)to make it neutral.

Thanks
