Soil pH is important, but other measurements are needed to determine how much calcium your soil and crops truly need.
The importance of calcium as an essential plant nutrient in the soil is often overlooked. Too many times, when soil tests show a low pH the immediate reaction is to spread more lime. However, ag lime tends to be insoluble and can take years to break down and show its effectiveness. In fact, the odds are good that your soil may already contain more undissolved, unused limestone than soil tests are calling for.
Rather than just looking at soil pH, an effective soil test should also include the quantity of soluble calcium (measured in ppm or %) and the Calcium % Base Saturation in the soil. The pH alone is not a valid indicator of soluble calcium levels in soils. For example, when pure sand is analyzed it has a neutral pH but has no available calcium.
