3:15 – 4:05 | Soil Acidification and Alleviation
Dr. Haiying Tao, Assistant Professor of Soil Fertility, Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, Washington State University.
Dr. Tao will discuss soil pH, an important parameter of soil health. The topic will cover why fertilizer applications can induce soil acidification. We will also discuss how soil acidification alters soil chemistry, fertility, and soil microbes, which in turn, have major effects on soil health and crop production.
