Something to NOT talk about today on valentine's day...

  For those of you that somehow missed it, today is Valentine’s day. Did you get your special someone a token of your love? Maybe a card, flowers, chocolate or perfume? Speaking of perfume, did you know that corn plants use perfume to woo beneficial growth-promoting microbes to live among their roots? These bacteria can make iron and phosphorus more available to plants and stop harmful bacteria. Very cool!

Let's talk about pH

When thinking about soil pH, it’s easy to get confused with all of the terminology involved. Simply stated, the acidity or basicity of any solution, e.g. soil and water, is defined by its pH. Technically, pH is the negative logarithm of the ionic concentration of H+ (hydrogen) in the solution. As the hydrogen ion concentration increases, the resulting pH number decreases. The reason logarithms are used is because the concentration of H+ is actually very small, even when the soil is very acidic. For example, when the pH of a soil solution is 4.0, the actual concentration of hydrogen ions is 0.0001 moles per liter (one mole is equal to the number of hydrogen atoms in 1 gram of hydrogen). The true meaning of the lowercase ‘p’ in pH has been purported to stand for different things throughout history. Some suggest that it stands for “power;” others claim “potential,” or…
