Dust control for secondary limestone roads using bentonite

Limestone is the most common sedimentary rock and is composed of calcium carbonate. Limestone rock is often one of high purity, with a calcium carbonate content of over 95%, and not uncommonly 99% (Trudgill, 1985). The initial stage of the production is the mining of the limestone. This is accomplished by either strip mining or underground mining.

to Improve Soil quality

The effectiveness of agricultural limestone depends on the degree of fineness because reaction rate depends on the size of the material (surface area) in contact with the soil. Agricultural limestone contains both coarse and fine materials. Many states require 75 to 100 % of the limestone to pass an 8- to 10-mesh screen and that 25%
