In: New Zealand Soil Bureau scientific reportSummary: Part A. This second revision (1981) includes several changes to technique and terminology. Some are relatively minor but those concerning determination of extractable sulphur and oxalate extractable Al, Fe and Si, are quite major. Another area of important change is the determination of exchangeable bases - both in terminology (bases and cations) and in the extent of dilution before measurement. This is to allow a more convenient range to be used during flame spectrometry for most soils. The use of `Soil Taxonomy' for classification of soils by Soil Bureau, on a trial basis, has made it necessary for this laboratory to carry out several additional analyses to those listed in the first revision. These comprise pH NaF, KCl-extractable Al, exch. acidity, dithionite-citrate Fe and Al, pyrophosphate extractable Fe and Al. Details of methods for these determinations are given. Sections include: 1. Soil pH. 2. Moisture factor. 3. Carbon. 4. Nitrogen. 5. Phosphorus. 6. Cation exchange properties. 7. Reserve potassium and magnesium. 8. Extractable iron, aluminium and silicon. 9. Soluble salts. 10. Calcium carbonate. 11. Phosphate extractable sulphur. 12. Analyses of plant litters, peats and compost. 13. Presentation and rating of results. (auth/JED)
