Dynamics of acid-soluble iron compounds in soddy-podzolic soils of the southern Komi Republic

Soil Chemistry


The content of total iron and its contents in the Tamm, Mehra-Jackson, and 1 N H2SO4 extracts were determined for arable and forest soddy-podzolic soils with different degrees of gleyzation. The seasonal dynamics of the acid-soluble iron compounds in the soils were studied. It was found that the amount of iron extractable by 1 N H2SO4 was smaller than that passing into the Tamm and Mehra-Jackson solutions. The seasonal variation of the acid-soluble iron compounds in the humid years was significantly higher than in the dry years; it depended on the hydrological conditions of the year of observations and the soil density and degree of gleyzation. The temperature conditions of the year of observations had a lower effect on the content of the acid-soluble iron. The profile distributions of the acid-soluble and total iron depended on the vertical and lateral migration of water, as well as the meso- and microrelief conditions. An increase in the content of acid-soluble iron was observed under the decreased temperature in the spring and fall. The mobilization of iron under the effect of podzolization was activated during the period of the summer rains. In the third year of the agricultural development, the content of acid-soluble iron in the soils slightly decreased, which could be indicative of a decrease in the content of iron involved in the biological cycle under the development and drainage conditions. An exception was provided by the arable soils on the toeslope, where the content of acid-soluble iron was higher than that in the forest soils occupying analogous positions in the relief.
