Abstract
Factors associated with soil acidity such as toxic concentrations of aluminum and manganese, deficiencies of calcium and magnesium, and fixation of phosphorus, are major causes for low crop yields on many soils of the Humid Tropics. The natural high acidity of the Ultisols and Oxisols of these regions is increased further by heavy fertilization with residually acid materials.
