    Estimates of total soil nitrogen by a standard Kjeldahl procedure and a modified procedure employing packets of premixed digestion salts were closely correlated. (r2 = 0.983). The modified procedure appears to be as reliable all the standard method for determining total nitrogen in southern alluvial forest soils.
