LEACHING AND LIMING IN AGRICULTURE



WHAT IS LEACHING?

Leaching is the loss or extraction of certain materials from a carrier into a liquid (usually, but not always a solvent). and may refer to: Leaching (agriculture), the loss of water-soluble plant nutrients from the soil; or applying a small amount of excess irrigation to avoid soil salinity. normal;">COMMON REMEDY OF LEACHING IN AGRICULTURAL ACTIVITIES IS THE APPLICATION OF FERTILIZERS.<



WHAT IS LIMING

Liming is the addition of wood ash or Calcium compound to the soil in other to reduce soil acidity….which is condition of too much Hydrogen present in the soil.
The practice of liming is done especially in humid climates where the soils are generally acidic because of too much leaching caused by heavy rainfall

WHAT IS LEACHING?

Leaching is defined as the washing down or downward movement of soil nutrients beyond the reach of the roots of crop plant.










This is usually as a result of too much rainfall.
Leaching is more on sandy soil than any other type of soil. On the savannah parts of west Africa, Leaching is not so much due to low rate of rainfall, however the rate of rainfall is much more greater than the rate of evaporation.
This means that water remains in the soil for a longer period of time thereby causing fast chemical leaching.

Leaching in plants can happen in potting containers. Once the chemicals have drained down through the soil, they can leave a crust of soluble salts on the surface, which makes it hard for the soil to absorb water. Removing this crust with water is the other type of leaching.
