measuring soil ph

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
pH measurements taken from wet and dry soils can vary if we measure the pH in water because the soil has a "background" salt concentration... To minimise the effect of salt concentration in soil on pH values, pH is now measured in 0.01 molar calcium chloride... As soil testing for phosphorus was originally conducted on the top 10 cm of soil, so the soil pH was only measured for the top 10 cm...
