Abstract
Prior to 1965. there had been no extensive examination of the effects of lime on crop yields in Uganda. However, some trials at the major research stations had indicated that responses to lime could be expected. Thus at Kawanda [1], Namulonge [2. 3], and at Serere [4], significant responses of cotton to lime had been recorded. Other significant responses to lime had been given by beans at Kawanda [5] and by sorghum at Serere [4]. A special case was the land reclaimed by draining the Nyanza Swamp in Kigezi. The pH of this soil was below 3.5, and Mills [6] found that maize failed completely unless lime was applied to the soil.
