The amount of exchangeable K in all the incubated soil samples was higher than the non-incubated soils at ninety days of incubation. The amount of non-exchangeable K generally increased with the period of incubation up to fifty-six days before declining to about the same level as in the ninety days incubated soils which have no CPA. Generally, the amount of the non-exchangeable K is about one half that in exchangeable form.
