If you have a pH meter available this is a quick and easy technique for recording soil conditions. Measure the pH value to track how the soil changes and improves over time. Biologically active soils (healthy soils) tend to bring soil closer to a neutral pH over time. In order to really understand how your soil pH is changing as you improve the soil health, it’s a good idea to have access to a “control field” perhaps a neighbour’s field (with permission), where the management remains constant. It is also interesting to compare soil pH changes over time in a single field and between fields on the farm.
