Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to determine whether or not "the different extraction methods that laboratories use to measure soil salinity status...can be used for assessing nutritional status of the soil." Explains that "understanding this is important, because use of the right extraction method will give...sound data that can keep...management programs responsive to the ever-changing conditions at [a] location." Describes extraction and lists chemcial fractions, including salts dissolved in soil solution, ready soluble salts, cations on the soil-cation-exchange sites, compounds that are slowly soluble, and very insouble compounds and minerals. Mentions the saturated paste extraction (SPE) procedure, stating that "the SPE procedure is used primarily to provide the information needed to determine three important soil characteristics: electrical conductivity, the sodium absorption ration and boron concentrations."
