Application of chemical fertilizers can contribute to soil acidification which is harmful for plant production, liming is a common practice to improve the pH of acidic soils. But how much to apply liming materials in a soil is varying. Soil Calcium Carbonate Equivalent (CCE) or content of Calcium plus Magnesium (for dolomitic limestone) offers a numeric value to the effectiveness of different liming materials. Both tests are offered in the AESL laboratories.
