    Soil Buffering: Mechanism of Buffering Action & Importance

    Assorted prairie grasses and sunflowers sink their roots deep into soil near Salina, Kansas. These perennials’ root systems grow and strengthen for years, preventing erosion and storing water. The thick sunflower roots in the photo are six feet long.

    Buffers are aqueous systems that tend to resist changes in pH when small amounts of acid (H+) or (OH–) are added. A buffer system composes of weak acid (the proton donor) and its conjugate base (the proton acceptor). A mixture of equal concentrations of acetic acid and acetate ion is …

    Soil Reaction: Pools of Soil Acidity

    Acidic soil

    Research suggests that three major pools of acidity are common in soils: (1) active acidity due to the H+ ions in the soil solution; (2) salt-replaceable (exchangeable) acidity , involving the aluminum and hydrogen that are easily exchangeable by other cations in a simple unbuffered salt solution, such as KCI; …
