Abstract
Two methods (manometric and volumetric) of determining calcium carbonate content were compared on IOO soil samples drawn from 22 profile pits of different soil types with variable calcium carbonate contents occurring in different parts of Kenya (semi-humid, semi-humid to semi-arid, semi-arid and arid) with annual rainfall ranging from 300 to 1400mm. The results obtained revealed that there exists high correlation between the percent CaC0 3 determined in manometric and volumetric and the exchangeable Ca m.e. % determined in high pH soils.
