Soil ph should be in the 7.6-8.0 range then you can cut the lime back. It takes lime several seasons to fully intigrate into the soil and only works by direct contact with soil so the lime should be worked into the top 3-4 inches of the soil with the disks. Clovers don't need nitrogen so a 0-10-10 product would be fairly inexpensive but most other crops will need some amount of nitrogen to maximize growth. I will be planting plots with brassicas and clover/chickory blend.
