Bulk source for Green Sand, phosphorus, Potash, lime, etc??

Shullsburg, WI(Zone 5a)

Was wondering if anyone knows of sources for these nutrients and maybe others in bulk issues. Am primarlily interested in Green sand sources in SW wisconsin, but general info on sources of these things that may be more economical to obtain would be appreciated.

Note: Jung's Seed Co does have some of these items but largest quantities are around 40 pounds.

Some of the commercial fertilizer companies may have them but are not publicly advertised.

I don't know about there but around here, most any serious farm store will have lime in large quantities. All I'd have to do for lime is to call the local farm store and they'd show up in the spring with a truck with a spreader on it.

Do a soil test - or multiple soil tests if your property is large enough to have multiple soil types - and make sure you actually need this stuff. You can have too much of a good thing.
