    Awesome chart. I learned from the professionals that from AR to the southeast of the US that land is more acidic – 6.7 and lower alkaline. No need to spend money on testing in this area. By that may be mean opposite areas may be more alkaline +7.0 and higher. Sulphur is used to reduce acidic numbers and Limestone is used to increase alkaline numbers. 6.5 is neutral which most plants like. Cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, artichoke, brussel sprouts,( collards that live year round) all love ph up to 7.5 best grown in winter. Tomato, watermelon, peppers, lentils thrive in low acidic 5.5-6.6 spring/summer. Learned the hard way and sharing what may help. Here is a link to that can be used for specific vegetables: Apples are higher 6.0 to 7.0 and oranges, lemons appears neutral 6.5.. Water is 7.0PH. Egg shells can increase alkaline over time and coffee grounds lower acid over time. Again, most can make it in 6.5 but for better ending adjust. This gives an idea for plans on which side of your property can be use for certain plants and alter the ph level. Remember too much fertilizer can burn plants.
