How do we measure pH?

Accurate measurement of soil pH is done by:

Electronic pH meter (pH meter):

It is a small device that looks like multimeter. We immerse the electrode appropriate for soil testing and in the monitor we can see the pH value accordingly. To successfully measure soil pH, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

pH measuring tapes:

They are small disposable paper strips. Depending on the color change, we can find out the pH value in the soil. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions, or send a soil sample to a dedicated to pH Measurement laboratory.

How an empirical measurement shows us pH of acidic or alkaline soil?

Alkaline soil:

Into a glass of vinegar (halfway) pour three tablespoons of soil from a point on the ground you wish to measure. If it foams strongly then the soil is alkaline (pH> 7).

Acidic soil:

Into a glass of water up to the middle, mix baking soda well (three tablespoons) and then pour three full tablespoons of soil from a spot on the ground you wish to measure. If it foams strongly then the soil is acidic (pH <7).
