The effect of different fertilizer rates on the content of heavy metals in soils and crops was studied in a long-term stationary experiment. It was found that the application of fertilizers for 65 years increased the content of available zinc, lead, nickel, iron, and manganese in the 0- to 20-cm layer of leached chemozem. Accumulation of Cu, Ni, Cd, and Pb in sugar beet roots and of Zn, Fe, Pb, and Ni in winter wheat grain was noted.
