Abstract due to the ease and low cost of implementation, a commonly used method of determin- ing the humus content in soils is the loss-on-ignition (loi).
Water loss from soil minerals has been known to cause errors in the determination of soil organic matter when the loss on ignition (loi) method is used. Loss on ignition is calculated by heating up a cement sample to 900 – 1000°c ( 1650 – 1830°f) until a constant weight is obtained the weight loss of the sample . Dry combustion carbon, walkley–black carbon, and loss on ignition (loi) were determined on whole soils (2000 µm) and aggregate size fractions (250–2000.
