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






Soil Science Society of America Proceedings. 36: 1, 115-118

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

The relative contributions of clay and organic matter to total CEC were measured using multiple regression analysis. The average exchange capaci-cities of organic matter and clay from AP horizons were calculated as 295and41 meq/100g, respectively. Standard partial regression coefficients indicated that organic matter was slightly more important than clay in predicting the CEC of surface horizons.

CEC was significantly correlated with clay, silt and organic-matter content, clay contributing most. The equation CEC = 0.51 clay + 4.12 OM was more suitable than one that included the silt factor.

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....

Effect of organic matter content on CEC was greater than that of the mineral fraction in rankers and brown earths and, to a lesser extent, in lehms and alluvial soils. In brown earths, the CEC of silt, clay and organic matter was respectively 7-17...
