Fertilizers, whether commercial or from manure sources, will not be effective if soil pH isn’t managed. Besides nutrient availability, soil biology and pesticide efficacy can also be pH dependent. Unfortunately, due to varying soil types and crop needs, there isn’t a single pH that is ideal. While most crops are assigned a suitable pH range (6.0 to 6.5), producers can maximize yields by better understanding soil properties and crop response.
