Entry: Buffering capacity

URI: http://registry.it.csiro.au/def/agriculture/cabi/BufferingCapacity

The extent to which a soil resists changes in pH. Soils containing large amounts of clay and organic matter have a high buffering capacity, which means that they will require large amounts of lime to increase soil pH. Soils with a low buffering capacity such as sandy soils with little organic matter require less lime to increase the soil pH.
