    Lime dissolves making an alkali - overdosing the soil will make the soil too alkaline to grow crops. Limestone is insoluble, it'll neutralise the acids, but go no further.

    But mostly cost. Limestone is just dug out the ground (as charco points out), lime must be made from limestone using high temperatures.
