Liming materials - Determination of the lime requirement in soil - Ammonium acetate buffer method pH 5,5

This document specifies a method for the determination of the lime requirement of acid soils to target pH levels at requested time of maintenance as determined by reaction with 0,1 mol/l ammonium acetate pH 5,5.
Due to general soil buffering systems, the method is applicable to all soils which are acid enough to dissociate hydrogen ions from the soil colloid system to depress the pH of the buffer solution.
NOTE 1   The method originates from research in Canada and Norway, see [1] and [2].
NOTE 2   Annex A gives regression equations to predict the maintenance of a range of pH levels at different times after liming in mineral and organic soils in Europe.

Kalkdünger — Bestimmung des Kalkbedarfs von Böden — Ammoniumacetat-Pufferverfahren pH 5,5

Dieses Dokument legt ein Verfahren zur Bestimmung des Kalkbedarfs saurer Böden fest, um pH-Werte zu erreichen, die sich über einen gewünschten Zeitraum aufrechterhalten lassen. Dieser Kalkbedarf wird anhand einer Reaktion mit 0,1 mol/l Ammoniumacetat, pH 5,5, ermittelt.
Unter Berücksichtigung der im Boden vorhandenen Pufferkapazität ist das Verfahren auf alle Böden anwendbar, deren Säuregrad so hoch ist, dass Wasserstoff Ionen von Bodenkolloiden dissoziieren und den pH Wert der Pufferlösung senken.
ANMERKUNG 1   Das Verfahren geht auf Forschungsarbeiten in Kanada und Norwegen zurück, siehe [1] und [2].
ANMERKUNG 2   Anhang A enthält Regressionsgleichungen zur Berechnung der Aufrechterhaltung verschiedener Bereiche von pH-Werten zu bestimmten Zeitpunkten nach der Kalkung mineralischer und organischer Böden in Europa.

Sredstva za apnjenje - Določanje potrebe po apnjenju tal - Metoda z amonijevim acetatnim pufrom pH 5,5

Ta evropska tehnična specifikacija določa metodo za določanje potrebe po apnjenju kislih tal za ciljne vrednosti pH v zahtevanem času vzdrževanja, kot je določeno z reakcijo z 0,1 mol/l amonijevega acetata pH 5,5.
Zaradi splošnih puferskih sistemov se metoda uporablja za vsa tla, ki so dovolj kisla, da se ločijo vodikovi ioni iz koloidnega sistema v tleh, da znižajo pH puferske raztopine.

Introduction

pH target levels for liming of soils depend on soil types, crops to be grown and regional climatic

conditions.

When pH targets have been fixed under each condition, this buffer method can be used, in addition to

determine total soil acidity, to predict the amount of an effective liming material to be used to achieve

this required lime status, irrespective of soil type. The buffer method will reveal the buffering capacity

of any soil prior to its admixture of a liming material.

4 Principle

The acidity of a test portion of the soil sample is liberated by reaction with an aliquot of ammonium

acetate pH 5,5, corresponding to the immediate lime requirement to achieve soil neutrality or another

defined pH target. To determine the lime requirement in the field the density of the soil is measured

simultaneously in the laboratory.
