Assessment of some Chemical Properties of Isan – Ekiti Soil, Southwestern Nigeria IJTSRD


Increase in knowledge of Chemical properties of soil will prevent or reduce road failure in tropical climate such as Nigeria. This study aimed at assessing some chemical properties of lateritic soil deposited in Isan – Ekiti, South-western Nigeria. Soil samples collected from the study area were subjected to CEC, Organic Carbon content, pH and Refractive Index tests. The CEC, Organic Carbon content, pH and Refractive Indices values for all the soil samples varied from 35.00 to 58.00 , 31.00 to 46.00 , 6.00 to 6.21 and 1.529 to 1.533 respectively. It could be generally observed there were presence of large deposit of lateritic soil with large contents of clay and its minerals. The soil in the study area were acidic in nature though weak and likely to have high retention capacity. There could be presence of clay minerals such as Allophone, Chlorite, Illite and Steatite in study area’s soil. Further study on the other Engineering properties of the soil should be carried out.
