Are my soils acid?


This leaflet was written for people concerned with the impact of soil acidity on commonly grown crops.

A laboratory test is the most accurate measurement of soil acidity, and will help  ensure that your pasture  planning is based on the best available information.

It includes information on:

  • Acid soils
  • How do I get my soil tested?
  • DIYs soil pH testing kits
  • Lime test strips
