Why is it worth doing soil correction?

As seen earlier, acidic soils are not always ideal for the crop you want to plant commercially and can even inhibit plant growth, such as African mahogany forests, for example. This acidity tends to decrease the absorption of calcium (Ca) in the roots, which are responsible for strengthening the plant.
Therefore, it is recommended to analyze both the soil and the characteristics of the crop that you want to plant on site.
In some cases there may be the presence of excess toxic substances such as aluminum (Al) and manganese (Mn) that prevent the development of the plant’s root system, that is, it impairs the formation of the root – responsible for the absorption of nutrients such as potassium (P ), nitrogen (N), calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg), making the seedlings more susceptible to tipping, directly impacting the productivity of the crop in question.
For soil correction it is generally recommended through plastering and / or liming, which consists of applying substances to increase the content of calcium and sulfur, in order to have more interaction and absorption of nutrients. For this, it is necessary to follow the guidance of a specialist who will prescribe which is the best corrective for the given situation and if the inputs are based on dolomitic, calcitic, magnesium limestone, among others.
options. It is worth remembering that both soil correction processes, such as plastering and liming, can be performed together without interfering with each other. Corrected soil allows plants to grow faster and be more resistant to pests and diseases, especially in the case of African mahogany.
