It takes an alkali to neutralise an acid soil.yes. worm crap ph 7. encourage more worms.
Depends on your soil & what it's natural ph should be , most Intensive farming methods lower ph , artificial fertilisers, chemicals etc.Can soil pH be lifted by cultural methods, without the addition of lime or the likes?
Yes, great granfer dug marl subsoil (calcareous clay) from pits around the field and spread that - killed him in end but transformed the fields forever. Should be easier with mechanical excavators - I wonder it is not widely done.Can soil pH be lifted by cultural methods, without the addition of lime or the likes?
I fully believe this and don’t dispute it, love a good calcium lime, just curious really. There’s not an acre here that wouldn’t benefit tremendously from 2t+, but it’s just so expensive getting good stuff here, so just exploring every option really.Lime is the best investment you will ever make
Its the keystone to all you do
