Bio-accumulation and distribution of heavy metals in fibre crops (flax, cotton and hemp)



Bio-accumulation and distribution of heavy metals in fibre crops (flax, cotton and hemp)



Industrial Crops and Products 19(3): 197-205



Flax, hemp and cotton, grown in an industrially polluted region in Bulgaria, were included in the present research. The experimental plots were situated at different distances (0.5 and 15 km) from the source of pollution, the Non-Ferrous-Metal Works (NFMW) near Plovdiv. We investigated the level of pollution and the way heavy metals (Pb, Cu, Zn and Cd) enter the fibre crops, by taking soil and plant samples.
