Soil quality - Determination of exchangeable acidity using barium chloride solution as extractant
|Publication Date:||1 April 2018|
|ICS Code (Chemical characteristics of soils):||13.080.10|
This document specifies a method for the determination of exchangeable acidity in barium chloride extracts of soil samples obtained according to ISO 11260.
The procedure described herein mainly concerns the determination of total exchangeable acidity by means of a fixed pH end point titration.
Two additional and optional procedures are given, describing respectively, determinations of free H+ acidity and aluminium in the extracts.
This document is applicable to all types of air dry soil samples.
