The potential of the soil to hold plant nutrients is governed by cation exchange capacity (CEC) of any soil. Estimating soil CEC aids in conventional soil management practices to replenish the soil solution that supports plant growth. In the present study, a multiple model integration scheme driven by hybrid GANN (MM-GANN) was developed and employed to predict the accuracy of soil CEC in Tabriz plain, an arid region of Iran. The standalone models (i.e., artificial neural network (ANN) and extreme learning machine (ELM)) were implemented for incorporating in the MM-GANN. In addition, it was tested to enhance the prediction accuracy of the standalone models. The soil parameters such as clay, silt, pH, carbonate, calcium equivalent (CCE), and soil organic matter (OM) were used as model inputs to predict soil CEC. By the use of several evaluation criteria, the results showed that the MM-GANN model involving the predictions of ELM and ANN models calibrated by considering all the soil parameters (e.g., Clay, OM, pH, Silt, and CCE) as inputs provided superior soil CEC estimates with an NSE = 0.87. The proposed MM-GANN model is a reliable intelligence based approach for the assessment of soil quality parameters intended for sustainability and management prospects.
