pH of Soil

  1. In a cup or beaker, mix 40 g of dried and sieved soil with 40 mL of distilled water (or other amount in a 1:1 soil to water ratio) using a spoon or other utensil to transfer the soil.
  2. Stir the soil/water mixture with a spoon or other stirrer until it is thoroughly mixed. Stir the soil/water mixture for 30 seconds and then wait for three minutes for a total of five stirring/waiting cycles. Then, allow the mixture to settle until a supernatant (clearer liquid above the settled soil) forms (about 5 minutes).
  3. Measure the pH of the supernatant using the pH paper or meter. Dip the pH paper or calibrated pH meter in the supernatant. Record the pH value on the Soil pH Data Sheet. If pH meter requires calibration, gloves should be worn.
