Soil acidity increase

    0 responses

Raj K starts with ...
I have observed that on application of sugarcane mulch the soil acidity increased from 6.5 to 4.5. In areas where I did not mulch it remained at 6.5. I have never noticed this before. This time it nearly killed my rose and some other veggies whic is why I decided to invest in a ph meter. The guy in Bunnings told me it’s possibly due to the bacterial breaki down of the mulch and it’s common practice to add lime before mulching.

Is this corrrect? Or could there be other reason for the sudden increase in acidity?
