Geochemical aspects of heavy metal pollution and agriculture in England and Wales



Geochemical aspects of heavy metal pollution and agriculture in England and Wales



Reference Book, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (326): 105-125



The main source of heavy metal contamination in the soils of England and Wales is historical mining and smelting. The availability of metals is frequently low and the composition of pasture herbage reflected the soil contamination to only a small degree.
