Abstract

Soil samples are often received at the Department of Agriculture together with a request that chemical analyses be done and that advice be given concerning mineral deficiencies which analysis may reveal. Unfortunately soil analyses are seldom satisfactory for determining fertiliser requirements or treatment for soils. The uses and limitations of soil analyses for mineral elements, for salinity and for pH are discussed in the following article.
