1729. Douglas, C.L., R.R. Allmaras and N.C. Roager. 1984. Silicic acid and oxidizable carbon movement in a Walla Walla silt loam.. Soil Sci. Soc. Amer. J. 48:156-162.
Leachate concentrations and net transfers of silicic acid decreased as long term C additions and soil pH increased; liming reversed this; results in adverse physical properties below the plow layer - decreased hydraulic conductivity, increased cementation.

5659. Rasmussen, P.E. and C.R. Rohde. 1989. Soil acidification from ammonium-nitrogen fertilization in moldboard plow and stubble-mulch wheat-fallow tillage.. Soil Sci. Soc. Am. J. 53(1):119-122..
Change in soil pH in relation to applied N was determined for one conventional and two stubble-mulch tillage treatments. Acidifying effects were concentrated in the top 7 cm of the stubble-mulched soil, but distributed to 22 cm or more with moldboard plowing. The rate of pH decline was greater for moldboard plowing than stubble-mulching. T: Long-term N fertilization effect on pH in the upper 45 cm of soil under different tillage systems. Linear relationship between applied N and soil pH, as affected by tillage.
