Abstract

Results from glasshouse experiments indicated that the surface incorporation of an organic matter, such as lucerne pellets, can increase subsurface soil pH.The combined incorporation of lucerne pellets with lime could improve the ameliorating effect of the organic amendment on subsurface soil acidity.However, in a first-year field experiment, the incorporation of lucerne pellets with lime only affected the pH in soil layer 5cm below the incorporated layer and did not improve grain yield.
