Abstract
Few legumes grow well when manganese or aluminum dominate the suite of exchangeable cations, as they do in certain acidic soils of Hawaii. An Oxisol was given increasing amounts of agricultural lime such that a soil pH gradient from 4.8 to 7.1 was established. The differing growth responses of leucaena, alfalfa, and stylo are shown.
