Soil quality -- Determination of the effects of pollutants on soil flora -- Part 1: Method for the measurement of inhibition of root growth
This standard has been revised by ISO 11269-1:2012
Describes a preliminary test for the rapid estimation of soil quality by comparing the growth of roots of a specified plant under standard conditions with that in a test soil. The method is applicable to all soils, soil forming materials, waste residues or chemicals which may be applied to soil, except where the contaminant is highly volatile or only affects photosynthesis. Is applicable to the measurement of the effects of substances deliberately added to the soil and to the comparison of soils of known or unknown quality.
