Alkalinity Calculator

This software allows growers to calculate the amount of acid to inject to neutralize alkalinty in irrigation water. Users can select either an endpoint pH or endpoint alkalinity concentration. The spreadsheet gives users the choice of sulfuric, nitric, and phosphoric acid as acidifying agents. If you enter your acid cost on a per gallon basis, it will calculate the cost of acidification. This spreadsheet requires Excel to run. It should run on a Windows and / or Macintosh machine.
