|Title:||Analysis of Glasshouse Soils on a Volume Basis Without Drying the Sample||Authors:||Gormley, T. R. (Thomas Ronan)||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6961||Date:||1970||Online since:||2015-09-09T08:42:39Z||Abstract:||pH, K and SC readings from glasshouse soils were found to be almost independent of the moisture content provided the sample for analysis was taken on a volume basis. Cylindrical containers were most suitable for measuring volumes of soil for analyses. Different results were obtained when five operators carried out analyses for K on wet peat samples taken on a volume basis. The precision of all operators was excellent (CV ≤ 5.3%). The different results were due to variations in the technique of filling the container.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||An Foras Talúntais||Journal:||Irish Journal of Agricultural Research||Volume:||9||Issue:||1||Start page:||87||End page:||93||Keywords:||Soil test; Moisture content; Operator difference||Other versions:||http://www.jstor.org/stable/25555564||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
