Leaf litter ash alkalinity and neutralisation of soil acidity

  title={Leaf litter ash alkalinity and neutralisation of soil acidity},
  author={Andrew D. Noble and Irene Zenneck and Peter J. Randall},
  journal={Plant and Soil},
Soil acidification is a major factor limiting the sustainability of agricultural production systems throughout the world. Liming may not always be economically possible and therefore alternative methods or complementary methods of amelioration are required. Leaf litter collected from several tree species was examined for ash alkalinity (as an estimate of organic anion content) and ability to ameliorate an acid soil. Ash alkalinity measured by titration of the ash and excess cation values… CONTINUE READING
