Relationship between organic matter content of certain virgin orthic topsoils, soil properties and climatic data in South Africa


South African Journal of Plant and Soil 10(4): 168-173
Relationship between organic matter content of certain virgin orthic topsoils, soil properties and climatic data in South Africa
The aim of this investigation was to determine whether the organic matter content of virgin orthic A-horizons, underlain by red apedal, yellow-brown apedal and soft plinthic B-horizons, can be calculated from available or easily measurable soil properties and climatic data. Virgin orthic topsoils (0-200 mm) were sampled at 41 localities which were well distributed throughout the summer rainfall area (25 degrees -30 degrees S and 24 degrees -30 degrees E).
