Contribution of organic matter and clay to the cation exchange capacity of the Rajasthan canal soils






Annals of the Arid Zone 16(4): 433-438

Contribution of organic matter and clay to the cation exchange capacity of the Rajasthan canal soils

The cation exchange capacity (CEC) of the Rajasthan canal soils showed a close correlation with clay, silt and organic matter content (OM) respectively. Clay had the predominant effect on CEC; this was followed in decreasing order by OM and silt.
