Abstract
Decreasing of soil pH leads to change the distribution or mobility of soil heavy metals, particularly in tropical arable lands which had relatively lower pH, where the distribution and mobility of heavy metals in soil-crop systems are extremely sensitive to soil acidification. The purpose of this study is to analyze the distribution of arable land soil pH of Hainan in 2005 and the 1980s. The results indicate that the soil pH was 5.20 in 2005 and 5.72 in the 1980s. Soil acidification areas mainly distribute in Wenchang and Haikou. The application of chemical fertilizers is probably the main reason for arable land soil acidification in Hainan. Several measures can be taken to control arable land soil acidification, including increasing organic fertilizer and application of the alkaline fertilizer.
