Different extractants were used to determine various forms of Fe and Al in three soil profiles developed under a tropical environment in India. The average contents of Fe and Al, extracted by different extracting reagents were found to be in descending order, as follows: Aldith > Aloxa > Alpyr and Fedith > Feoxa > Fe pyr Analysis of pyrophosphate (pyr), oxalate (oxa) and dithionate (dith) extractable Fe and Al showed that with increasing soil age, the crystalline Fe and Al oxides increased at the expense of the poorly crystalline forms. The mean content of amorphous Fe and Al, crystalline Fe and Al and their ratio values in the three different soil series estimated the degree of soil development and were found to be in the following descending order: Ghoradanga >Kanchanpur >Lachimpur. Correlation between different forms of Fe and Al and selected soil properties were examined. Multiple regression equations were formulated to show the relation among soil properties and different forms of Fe and Al.
