Abstract  

The results of the analysis of approximately 100 soil samples for Na, Mg, Al, K, Ca, Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, As, Sb, Ba, La, Sm, Eu, Dy, Lu, Hf, Th, and U by neutron activation analysis, in three soil horizons from four of the main agricultural parishes of Jamaica are presented. While there is some regional variation in the abundances, there are no statistically significant distributions of abundances across the horizons. The results for a few selected elements are compared with abundances in other countries.
