The objective of the study is to compare the acidity and amount of alkaline and alkaloids of different types of soil from several regions in Saudi Arabia and the impact on agriculture in the High school of Arqa in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
In this study, we used the experimental method where the acidity protocol and the measurement of the amount of bicarbonate in the soil and soil color protocol were measured for several types of soil from several regions of the Kingdom, including Riyadh, Al-Nofod , Al-Qassim , Al-Muzahmiva , Mashaala , Arqa high school , school73 , During this experiment, we observed the difference in soil acidity, bicarbonate, soil color, and their effect on plant growing in these areas.
From this study, we found that acidity in the soil and the amount of bicarbonates in them adversely affect the soil culture, soil fertility and efficiency of the agricultural crop.
We recommend at the end of the research that:
1- Further studies of high and developed level are carried out on the acidity of the soil and its impact on agricultural crops.

This study contributes significantly to the development and improvement of the level of agriculture in our region.
