A study was made to determine the effects of irrigation on the chemical properties of certain Nebraska soils. Locations sampled were on typical fine and medium textured soils of the Loess Plains, and representative soils of longer irrigation history with fine, medium and sandy textured profiles were selected in the Central Platte Valley. Determinations were made of the organic matter, cation exchange capacity, percentage base saturation, pH, soluble phosphorus, conductivity of the saturation extract, and the exchangeable hydrogen, magnesium, potassium, and sodium of irrigated and non-irrigated soils. The soils investigated were from the Hastings, Crete, Wood River, Hall, and Ortello series.
