Arsenic accumulation of common plants from contaminated soils



Arsenic accumulation of common plants from contaminated soils



Plant and Soil 272(1/2): 337-347



A pot experiment was conducted to investigate the relationship between soluble concentrations of arsenic (As) in soil and its accumulation by maize (Zea mays), English ryegrass (Lolium perenne), rape (Brassica napus) and sunflower (Helianthus annuus) on two different soils: a calcareous Regosol (silty loam) and a non-calcareous Regosol (sandy loam). Arsenic (Na2HAsO4. 7H2O) was applied to obtain comparable soluble As concentrations in the two soils.
