Calcium & Magnesium
Agronomy • 4m 1s
Calcium (Ca) and Magnesium (Mg) are two of the most important factors in determining the structure and mobility of nutrients in your soil. If these two cations get out of balance, they can dramatically affect crop productivity. Join Stephanie and Brian in this short video where they discuss each nutrient's role in a base saturation analysis.

Sodium & Hydrogen
Sodium (Na) and Hydrogen (H) are two of the five cations that make up soil Base Saturation. The ratio of these cations is an indicator of the overall balance of your soil. In the latest Back 2 Basics video, Brian and Stephanie take a closer look at these two nutrients and their effect on balancin...
Everything in your soil - from biology to nutrient availability and more - is heavily influenced by soil pH. Understanding this characteristic is critical to getting the most return on many of the products you use on your farm. Join Brian and Stephanie as they take a closer look at soil pH in the...
Productive Potential: Base Saturations
Balanced soils deliver nutrients more efficiently to your crops. One of the best ways to measure this balance is to examine the base saturation of the cations in your soil. How does base saturation differ from parts per million or pounds per acre? What is the optimal range for each cation? Find o...
