    How deep are your raised beds? Dont want any root crops trying to grow into it for obvious reasons. I can't see the harm in using it if you beds are deep enough but it may increase watering, some crops like potatoes need a good amount of water. I would avoid if a lot of lime stone chipping are present, some plants dont like to much lime in the soil, it can help towards potatoes getting common scab.
