Abstract: The problem of arsenic accumulation in
soils is one of comparatively recent importance.
As agriculture became more intensive,
it became necessary to use poisons to combat
attacks of certain insects, fungi, and more
recently, weeds. Because arsenic is very
poisonous to plant enemies and because it
is comparatively cheap, it was only natural
that it should have found general use. The
arsenic so used has for the most part accumulated
in the upper soil layers, and
sooner or later becomes a menace to crop
production. This paper is concerned with
this problem particularly with reference to
Hawaiian soils.
