Thank you so much for joining the REPLAY. See you on the next webinar!
“Live Regenerative Soil Mastermind Call Replay”
- In this video, Bryan McLeod discusses the importance of understanding pH levels in agriculture, emphasizing that it measures soil acidity rather than serving as a direct indicator of soil health or nutrient levels.
- He explains the composition of pH in soil, including the base saturation percentages of calcium, magnesium, sodium, and hydrogen.
- Bryan warns about the negative effects of an unbalanced composition, specifically pointing out the issues caused by excess calcium, such as reduced availability of trace elements, calcium and magnesium deficiency, and manganese deficiency.
- He also talks about the role of lime in affecting soil composition and the impact of excess potassium in soils.
- Bryan emphasizes the need for proper irrigation and stresses the importance of comprehending compost composition for successful crop growth.
- He highlights several examples of unique pH levels and mineral imbalances in soil samples from around the world and discusses the potential benefits of understanding and managing soil pH.
- Bryan shares his experience working with a farmer in Victoria, where he improved the soil from a pH of 5.2 to 6.2, resulting in a record harvest of 22 bags of wheat.
