Soil pH affects plants' ability to take up soil nutrients, and changes the forms in which those nutrients exist. Maintenance of an ideal pH (around 6-7 for most common crops) ensures plant health and productivity.

pH is a soil characteristic that is affected by management, and is essential for optimal uptake of nutrients by plants. While the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) is what determines a soil's pH, other factors such as soil type, fertilization, etc. influence the concentration of H+, and thus the pH. Liming soils to increase soil pH allows the plants to take up the proper nutrients.

Many liming materials are available commercially, the speed and strength of which can be calculated using Fineness Values, Calcium Carbonate Equivalents, and Effective Neutralizing Value.

pH is a scale that chemists use to measure acidity. Values < 7 are considered acidic, values > 7 are alkaline and 7 is neutral. Most plants can tolerate a wide pH range in solution culture, but they cannot tolerate a wide range of acidity in the soil... Read More...
