In a wide range of soils, from citrus groves in Florida, representing 21 soil series with pH ranging from 3.57 to 7.28, Ca or Mg contents extractable by Mehlich 3 (M3), Mehlich 1 (M1), ammonium acetate (AA) and NH4Cl were strongly correlated with soil pH (rsuperscript 2 = 0.381-0.482). Weak but significant correlations were also found between ammonium bicarbonate DTPA/(AB-DTPA) extractable Ca or Mg and soil pH (rsuperscript 2 = 0.235-0.278).
