Table 5 The summary for the simple linear correlation analysis performed to determine whether the interactions between the different soil attributes under a given land-use practice are significant. The depth increment in the analysis was a selection variable

  1. The correlations are significant at P < 0.05. The correlations were conducted using the means listed in Table 2 for the four cropland land-use and similarly for the other land-use practices. For any given land-use practice, the correlations were conducted for OC = f (MN or EC or pH), MN = f(EC or pH) and EC = f(pH). Only the significant correlations are reported in this table. Electrical conductivity is abbreviated as EC
