Any reason why I need to wait until Fall to add Ag lime, not hydrated, to my ponds? I was told by an "expert" to wait until Fall or Winter to add it but he couldn't really say why. My plan is to run a spreader truck along the perimeter. I can't see what it would hurt, but then again, I figured that I better check. TIA....

Sometimes they are busier in the summer than the fall or winter, which is why they prefer liming later in the year. From what I can tell, it does't make a lot of difference to the BOW.

Thanks! I ended up adding 3 tons to my new pond and 2 tons to the old one. Everything seems just fine. I'll upload a video if I can figure out how.

Probably doesn't help you much, but I added dolomitic ag lime to my pond last week. So far, so good... pH looks great and fish seem to be well.
