I am doing soil related calculations for moisture content and the soil characteristics I need (among others) is the content of the soil as a percentage for:
- organic matter
I am thinking I take the the sand content (in g) divide by 1000 to get sand percentage content and like wise for clay (except use the clay content value in g). For organic matter do I take the soil organic content they provide in dc/kg and divide by 10000? It seems some areas will have a very high organic material content then. I would expect somewhere between 1% and 6% but some areas if I use that method would be like 44%.
