Plants Will Tell About Alkali

Categories: Soils, Fertilizers and Irrigation

Please give information as to the application of gypsum to my soil which

is somewhat alkaline. I do not care to have an analysis made of my soil,

and believe that you can advise me without it.

If your soil is too alkaline for the growth of plants you can

demonstrate that fact by experiment, or if it is capable of being used

by the application of gypsum, that also can be determined by experiment

and noting the behavior of the same plants afterwards. It is rather a

slow process but it is sure enough.
