    It can take up to ~10 years for lime to fully break down depending on particle size, so if you have already applied that much I’d recommend holding off on any more lime for a few years and keep rechecking pH. As others have said, biology can adjust pH in the rhizosphere to suit plant needs. If you are set up to do foliar applications, you might be able to save some money by doing sap testing and correcting plant imbalances with foliars rather than adding to soil. Running a total nutrient digestion test (Regen Ag Labs, NE) will tell you how many nutrients are in your ‘bank account’. This might give you some peace of mind if you are worried about needing to add P, K etc. At least in the short run you can utilize those nutrients as long as you have the biological activity to access them.
