Soil Chemical Makeup- Ions, Cations, pH (Intro to Soil Science Session 3 Part 1)
This video is Session 3 part 3 of our ongoing training on "Introduction to Soil Science." This training gives a broad overview and introduction to some basic soil characteristics: phases (solid, liquid, gas), texture, density, structure, reaction (pH), plant-water relationships, organic matter, and nutrients.
This video discusses the chemical makeup of soil, ions, pH.
