Soil Cadmium content on Chaponne of Carixien soil series in France comparing with the result on Domerien soil series

Objectives: The present research was carried out in order to know soil cadmium (Cd) availability. Method: The researchers present results of analyzing soil Cd contents on a Carixien soil series of a part of Burgundy (in French Bourgongne) in France. And the researchers compared this data on the Carixien soil series with the data on Dubloc (Domerien soil series), the result on Domerien soil has been already published. Findings: The pH value on Dubloc and that on Chaponne were very different. On Chaponne the pH changed in big range, while on Dubloc the value ranged little. The Chaponne soil extracted large amount of Cd up to 1440 minutes (24 hours), while the Dubloc soil did in smaller amounts. Novelty: The researchers take a hypothesis for this result.On Chaponne soil the ‘hole’ occurred with the rapid change of pH value, and then from the hole the Cd in the soil continued to be extracted, while there was not ‘hole’ in the Dubloc soil. But the real reason of ‘hole’ of the Chaponne soil is not explained until now.
