Grassland Soil pH

Soil health and fertility are fundamental to livestock producers, in order to maximise grass growth. The pH status of a soil plays a hugely important role with 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.

In this dairy insight we look at; what pH is, the causes of pH decline, problems resulting from an incorrect pH and how to achieve a target pH in your grassland soil.
