Decreasing soil pH, also called soil acidification, is a growing concern in eastern Washington and northern Idaho. Researchers and farmers have measured soil pH values below 5.0 throughout the Palouse region. Decreasing soil pH has serious implications for the cropping systems of the Palouse. This introduction is the first in a series of fact sheets on soil acidification and introduces the fundamentals of soil pH and acidification. Other fact sheets in the series will cover more specific information on topics such as the influence of pH on pathogens and microbes, herbicide activity, crop nutrition, liming, and variety selection.
