Exactly the hypothesis that I want to prove by a lengthy compilation of pH/Brix
field tests. You're getting it, Kirt, you're getting it.
The first thing I'd like to establish is whether the leaf pH can be at an "OK"
6.4 (i.e., a well-balanced soil), but the Brix might be stuck in a low range
because the total available nutrition is too low. This would surely help
explain those rare low-Brix crops that are *not* gobbled up.
