Abstract:

The pH, either directly or indirectly affects several mechanisms of metal retention by soils. In this research work, the pH values of the soils samples from the various locations of Kaduna metropolis were determined so as to assess the bioavailability, mobility and solubility of the metals in the soils. The pH was measured using a microprocessor pH meter model 210. The pH values of the soil samples from the various locations were acidic and a significant difference was indicated in the pH values across the guinea corn and maize grown soils. The least pH value across the guinea corn grown soils was found in the first homogeneous subgroup comprising of Kakuri and Tudun Wada, while the highest pH value was in the forth homogeneous subgroup which included Nasarawa and Unguwan Mu’azu. Similarly, the least pH value across the maize grown soils was found in the first homogeneous subgroup which contained Unguwan Mu’azu and Mando while the highest pH value across the maize grown soil was in the fourth homogeneous subgroup which included Nasarawa and Kachia.
