The DETERMINATION Of Selected Metal ELEMENTS IN AGRICULTURAL SOILS FROM THREE AREA COUNCILS OF THE FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY (FCT), ABUJA, NIGERIA USING ATOMIC ABSORJ)TION SPECTROPI-IOTOMETR

ABSTRACT

Co111positc soil samples were collected rnmlomly within Gwagwul8da, Kujc

ami Kw;di 1 t.:n Councils or the Federal Capit:d Territory (FCT), /uja. The

sarnpks were mwlyscd lr pH. percentage organic mutter, exchat1gcablc bases,

cxchallgcahlc acidity. c!Tective cntion cxclwngc cnpacity (I􀛺CEC), perccnt;1gc base

saluratioll, available lllclal clclllclltS, the toltd levels or COIICl'lltratiollS of the lllCtal

clclllCiltS. chcrnical IJ·actiOIIS of 11lallgallCSC, LillC

dctl􀅚:ity, texture and textural classes.

The pll of each sample was determined in w;iter (l:l)

c;dciunl chloride solution using iCJU-72 Lahuwtory pll meter. Organic carbon

was dctenuined by Walkley-Uiack method. The exchangeable sodium and

potassiunt were measured using the !lame photometer. while t.he exchangeable

lllllgtlCSIUill and cnlciu111 were nteasurcd ustng !lo111ic Absorption

Spcctropltototm:tcr (1/S).

The excltnngcablc ncidity (aluminiutn ion and hydrogen ion) were

dctcnn ined by extracting with JN potassium chloride solution and the extract

titrntcd using sodiulll hydroxide solutioll aflcr auding phenolphthalein indicator.

The cl'kctivc catim1 exchange capacity and the pcrccntnge base saturation were

obtained by calcula􀅛ion.
