Lowering Soil Ph
I’m trying to develop a spot treatment for high ph spots using a blend of AMS and elemental sulfur. Initial treatment I plan to use is 400# AMS 50# sulfur. Anyone have experience with anything similar? What results could I expect?
Good question on lowering soil pH. Because of the high cost cost associated with applying the amount of sulfur and/or AMS needed to bring do...More
Soil is approx 7.9-8.4. Hilltops and cut spots from flood irrigation. Thanks for the links.
You’re going to need a bit more then that depending on soil type. Look at Agvise’s website. They had a plot with up to 10k lbs of elemental ...More
It all depends on what is causing the rose in pH. For instance if its carbonates then you will need alot more sulfur. But if its a magnesium...More
Much of our farm is high ph (8+) high salt high calcium white dirt. My two bits is as much elemental sulfur as you can afford. Or if you wan...More
what rate sulfuric acid would it take to reduce 8.0 ph soil
Depends on what you’re trying to get to. But 25-30 gallons per full ph point
I would look at running as much AMS you can handle as well as Oats in the spring before the crop. Oats are very acidic and help reduce ph an...More
How much sulfuric acid would it take to go from 8.4 ph to 7.9 PH per acre?
About how much does a gallon of sulfuric acid cost?
Depends entirely on purity but $2-5
It varies some field to field but 25-30 gallons per acre per depending on acid purity. Per point of soil ph. I.E. 30 gallons should take you...More
Long term fix: gypsum and tile. Even this is going to take a look of time. You need to let the gypsum open up the soil and allow the salts t...More
