.. The top secret to enhancing crop yields
PH (potential hydrogen) is the element that spurs the formation of acid in the soil. It is an excellent chemical indicator of soil conditions, its quality and its ability to avail nutrients (both macro and micro) to crops.
Soil pH imbalance can hinder the ability of crop roots to absorb nutrients from the soil.
It is important to test your soil pH, more especially when planting on the land or in the garden for the first time.
Different crops prefer different pH levels. Potatoes can do well at 5.5, while maize can only do well from 6-7. Vegetables, such as cowpeas and other legumes crops, are very sensitive to acidity and do not tolerate alkalinity at all.
