|Answer from NGA

|The product is the same. There is an advantage to using the pelletized or granular type of lime. Pelleted lime costs a little more but has several advantages in that it goes through a spreader more easily; may be spread by hand without being covered by dust; dust does not drift or blow into areas where lime is not wanted; eliminates such problems as tracking lime onto patios, etc. or into the house; and is easier to clean up if the bag is broken. Either will work so the choice is yours.
