In this paper, we report a simple but effective algorithm to estimate the undetermined coefficients in the formula of soil water electrical conductivity value by the soil apparent electrical conductivity method. By doing so, the coefficients can be accurately obtained to further calculate the soil water electrical conductivity. According to the process of calculating the soil solution electrical conductivity based on the apparent conductivity of soil, the error of the calculation equation is effectively calculated by the two order curve fitting method. Meanwhile the genetic algorithm is adopted to reduce the influence of the data error generated by the proposed algorithm, and improve the accuracy of the data as well. The experimental results demonstrate that the solution by the proposed algorithm can be effectively obtained and the error change is in one direction simultaneously. With these advantages, we can use soil water electrical conductivity to calculate the content of soil salt.
