Th~s high pH suits can cause problems for plants by reducing the avaitabiiity of cemdn microautriems. For example, most Kansas soils have more tkan adequate amounts of iron. However, ahigh soil pH can make iron unavailable to the #ant, resulting i, a condition known as ironchlomsis. Iron chiantis reduces the health of#ants byredacing #mtosynthe.sis. Lowering the pH of such soils will reduce the occun'encc iron chZomsis. Now would be a good time to have a sail test done to see if your FH is too high. If so, sulfur can be added eidler now or in the s~iag to lower the pH. Different textures of soil require rill- fare-at amounts. A sandy soil needs seven poun~ ofsul flu'per I.(YJO square feet m reduce pI-I one ~N3irl.[. A loam soil needs I I poandsand ciay r, eeds I? pou.nd.q to do dzc same. For exampZe, if you wished to lower pH from 8 5 In 6.5 on a toam soil. you would need 22 pounds of sulfur per 1.003 square feet. However. the m~al ammmt of suffur needs 1o be spread ouzover l',vo 0r th.r,"e~ applications. So what pH do we shoot for? For most plants, a pH between 6-0 and ZO is prefen- d. U~formnate|y.addLng so|. fur ~o lower pH is not as clear-cut a ~t]mion a ~ we would like. Here are santa other factors to keep in mind. F~eeculcium carbonate: Some soi~s have free caleiun'= carbonate, actual panicles of limestone mi~ed in the ~ii. The~"ca|careo~+'soils normally have a pH of?.3 to 8.5, with 8.2 to 8.3 being most common, In order for us to lower tl'~ pH wi~ sulfur, all Rue cal- cium earlmnate mast be neutralized first. Not all high pH soils ate calca.~r- ous= Perform this simple test to see if your soil con hains appreciable amounts of free lime. Apply om~ drop of vinegar to dry soil. A vigorous fizz ~ua[ly mezas tk soil contains at least percent calcium ~a**'bonale. Amildfizz suggests a calcium carbo~a~ of be- tw cn one and two percent and a fizz that can onty be heard suggests the soil has a calcium carbonate c~nlenl less than one percent. How sulfur works" E'~cmental sub fur does not lower pH directly~ It must firm be oxidiz~ed m the sulfate form with the result being sulfuric acid.The sulfuric acid produces hydrogen, which acidifies the ,a~il and lowers pH. The ox idati~n takes p+acelmmarily through microbial activity. Oxidation takes time: Microbial ox ida~itm oFelemental sulfur rakes ti rue and depends on: number of sulFur ogi- di].ing bacteria present; temperature (75- 1114 degas optimum): moistt,~ c~ntent of <,oil (too wet nr too dry will slow dt~wn the processh and xize of sulh~r panicles I the smaller the hatter 1.
