What is pH?
pH is the measurement of acidity or alkalinity and ranges from 1 (most acid) to 7 (neutral) to 14 (most alkaline). It is likely that your soil is in the 5 to 8.5 range. In soil, pH extremes limit biological activity, humus formation, and plant growth. Frequent monitoring is essential, as soil pH changes rapidly during fertilization, irrigation, and even the phases of the moon. Effective pH monitoring of spray solutions will maximize nutrient uptake in foliar feeds.
Having the correct soil pH is essential for healthy and productive plants. An example is blueberries, they need a very low pH (4.5-5.5) to grow, be happy and produce fruit. Once you know your soil's pH, you can lower it with soil sulfur or raise it with oyster shell lime. We have products you need to check your soil's pH.
