Abstract

Recent research at the University of Florida Everglades Soil Testing Laboratory at Belle Glade has suggested that the Mehlich-III soil test has potential for use on Histosols. A laboratory study with shaking times (SHs) ranging from 1 to 29 min and solution:soil ratios (RAs) ranging from 8 to 22 was conducted using four Florida Histosols. Across the four soils, the amounts of extracted P and K in this study were increased at high levels of RAs and SHs. Extracted P and K levels for all soils were well above the lower limits for standard analytical procedures. Within each soil, the models for P data predicted a higher coefficient of determination than did the models for K. Since no optimum RA and SH combinations were found, the published values appear to be acceptable for Florida Histosols to minimize laboratory analytical time and chemical waste or costs. -from Authors
