Solution 1

If the soil is acidic and improper for cultivation, then to increase the basicity of soil, the farmer would treat the soil with quick lime or slaked lime or chalk.

Solution 2

If the soil that is on the field were too acidic then he would have to treat the soil with quicklime. If the soil is, too acidic it means that it will be having a low ph. Therefor the farmer would need to add lime or even slaked lime so that his soil is not too acidic.
