Soil Chemistry


The scope of stable strontium migration in the light-textured soddy-podzolic soils was determined in columns in a series of simulation experiments. The amount of leached strontium was found to depend on its initial content in the soils, the humus content, and the volume of percolated moisture. The artificial enrichment of soils with strontium increases the losses of this element due to its leaching. However, strontium is not completely removed even upon repeated water percolation.
