The pH of your soil has a big influence on forage growth and the nutrient content of the plant. Incorrect pH will affect the availability of soil nutrients. This can result in lower forage yield, reduced intakes and potentially poorer quality forage. 

This Farming Note covers:

  • What is pH?
  • Causes of declining pH
  • Problems resulting from incorrect pH
  • Assessing soil pH
  • Calculating your lime requirements

Issued October 2012.
