Soyabean grown in volcanic ash soil showed decreases in wt. of stems and leaves with 200 p.p.m. Zn; Cd, Cu, Ni and Pb were not effective. Cd content of turnip and soyabean roots decreased with increase in applied Zn. Cu content in leaves and stems...

Interaction of heavy metals added to soil on the cadmium, copper, zinc, nickel and lead content of vegetables. Application of Cd to the soil decreased stem length in soyabean while application of Zn decreased leaf and stem wt. Application of Zn decreased the Cd content of turnip but the opposite was found in leaves and stems of soyabean. Cd content of leav...
