• Soil acidity occurs naturally in higher rainfall areas and can vary according to geology, clay mineralogy, soil texture and buffering capacity.
  • Agricultural production also increases acidity through unbalanced nitrogen cycling (excessive use of nitrogen fertilisers and nitrogen leaching) and the continued removal of alkaline plant/animal materials (grain, hay, wool, meat).
  • Lamb/Wool Production and Hay Production for livestock are the heaviest contributors to soil acidification.
