Effects of duration and conditions of storing soil samples on soil chemical composition



Effects of duration and conditions of storing soil samples on soil chemical composition



African Journal of Agricultural Sciences 8(1+2): 89-102



Soil samples collected randomly at 0-20 cm depth were air-dried, ground, placed in screw-topped bottles and stored under three storage conditions for durations of 1, 12 and 24 weeks to assess variations in chemical composition. Compared to samples stored for 1 week before analysis, soil-pH and total-N increased, while P decreased after 24 weeks of soil storage in all storage conditions.
