What Is Soil Acidity and How to Manage It?

Soil acidification is a natural process that accelerates dramatically in areas with productive agricultural.
The pH scale indicates whereas the soil is alkaline or acidic – as the concentration of hydronium cations (H+) in the soil increases, the pH lowers and the soil acidity rises.
Limestone contributes to the soil buffering ability and therefore has a neutralizing effect on the pH level. Yet, in areas where the soil is poor in limestone, the acidification occurs rapidly.
