Potassium (K) Equipment which are required in measurement of potassium, flame photometer, centrifuge, capable of 3000rmp and mechanical shaker
Procedure
A. Extraction
Weigh 10g of air dry soil into a 250ml flask then add 50ml 1 N NH4OAc solution. Shake it for 30 minutes at 200-300 rpm on a reciprocate shaker. Using a Whatman No.1 filter paper filter the suspension. Omit any soil particles and bring the extract up to 50 ml volume with 1 N NH4OAc solution.
B. Measurement
According to the instructions provided operate flame photometer. Draw a calibration curve and run a series of K standards. In the soil samples measure the K by taking emission readings on the flame photometer at 767mm wavelength. According to the calibration curve calculate K concentration.
Calculation
Extractable K (ppm) = ppm K (from calibration curve) × V/Wt Extractable K (ppm) =meq/L K (from calibration curve) ×V/Wt×39.1
Where:
V = Total volume of the soil extract (ml)
Wt = Weight of air dry soil (g)
V= Total volume of the soil extract (mL)

Data Preparation in Geodatabase Soil and water quality data were collected manually. Soil data, water data and arsenic data was entered in MS excel and then interpolation and also reclassification of images in ARC GIs. Different types of methodology were used to achieve the required targets. Different parameters were applied to

The exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) are the main types of factor analysis. In this study factor analysis were performed to perceive the pattern of correlations (eighter positively or negatively) between the observed measures (DeCoster, 1998). The main objective to performed factor analysis is to determine the strength of relationship between each factor, most important feature in a group of items and generate factor
