Trying to achieve a neutral soil pH of 7.0 isn’t always in your best interest, says Daniel Kaiser, nutrient management specialist at the University of Minnesota.
Crops are productive in a range of soil pH values, and limestone — really the only way to adjust soil pH — can be a costly input depending on where you farm.
In this episode of the Strip-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Yetter Farm Equipment, associate editor Sarah Hill talks with Kaiser about the range of pH values needed for optimum crop performance, how liming works in the soil, what factors to consider when applying lime and more.
