Location: Online

Soil pH is one of the most important soil properties. Soil pH affects many chemical and biological properties within the soil, namely nutrient availability and toxicity, soil microorganisms, and the suitability of the soil for intended crops. Soils naturally become more acidic with time and soil weathering, but crop management practices can influence the rate at which acidification occurs. Alkaline soils can develop from the presence of basic salts. In this webinar, processes affecting soil pH will be discussed along with how pH affects nutrient availability, management and remediation practices, and potential soil amendments.
