Influence of temperature on readily extractable copper in soils locations

To examine the influence of temperature on readily extractable copper in soils.

Key messages
  • Temperature did not influence extractable copper consistently.
  • The effects of varied with the soil and on whether or not copper was added.
  • When soils were incubated under a fluctuating temperature 20 to 40% less copper was extracted by EDTA then when incubation was constant at 20°.
  • This result emphasises the need for caution in applying the results from constant temperature to field situations where the temperature fluctuates.
