This study evaluated the relative extraction ratio (RER) of As and heavy metals (Cd, Cu and Pb) in paddy soils using the two types extractant, 0.05 M EDTA and 0.43 M HNO3. The RER was calculated by dividing the concentrations of metals obtained by 0.05 M EDTA or 0.43 M HNO3 extraction by those obtained by aqua regia extraction. The RER of 0.43 M HNO3 was larger than that of 0.05 M EDTA. Correlation analysis indicated there was statistically significant correlation (p<0.001) between the concentration in aqua regia and 0.05 M EDTA or 0.43 M HNO3. Especially, Cd showed the higher correlation than other metals. Stepwise multiple linear regression analyses indicated soil pH, CEC, organic matter content, and soil texture all influenced the metal extraction rates and bioavailability of the metals.

Keywords: Soil, Relative extraction ratio (RER), Extractability, Arsenic, Heavy metal
