Drying the samples removes the diluting influence of moisture and facilitates the sample stages of grinding and sieving. The protocol also recommends soil preparation before testing with an XRF analyzer to obtain the highest level of accuracy Local environmental programs frequently have limited time and funding for testing, however, so use of field-portable XRF analysis may not be productive if extensive soil sample preparation considerably increases the time and expense of performing environmental sampling and efficiently conveying the results.
