FOREWORD

Standard
( First Revision ) was adopted by the Indian
on 30 August 1985, after the draft finalized
by the
Soil Amendments
and Reclamation
of Problem Soils Sectional Committee had been approved
by the Agricultural
and Food Products Division
Council.

Institution

0.2 Limestone
and dolomite
apart from being used in cement,
steel,
foundry, chemical and glass industries,
are also used as soil amendments
for correcting
soil acidity.
0.3 This standard
was first .published
in 1969 and included
liming
materials such as limestone, dolomite, basic slag, sea-shells,
press mud,
by-product
calcium
carbonate
and by-product
hydrated
lime.
Since
the neutralizing
value and other physical
characteristics
of liming
materials
vary to a great extent, it was considered
desirable
to prepare
separate specifications
for different liming
materials
used as soil amendments.
Hydrated
lime and burnt lime have been covered under
Part 1.
0.4 The requirements
for limestone
for chemical
industries,
foundries
and for limestone and dolomite for glass industries have been covered in
IS : 3204-1978*, IS : 4140-1978t, and IS : 997-1973: respectively.
0.5 For the purpose of deciding whether a particular
requirement
of this
standard
is complied
with, the final value, observed
or calculated,
expressing
the result of a test or analysis,
shall be rounded
off in
accordance
with IS : 2-1960s. The number of significant
places retained
in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value
in this standard.
*Specification
