Reduction in the number of beneficial soil microorganisms due to high metal concentration may lead to decrease in organic matter decomposition leading to a less fertility of soil. Enzyme activities are very much useful for plant metabolism, hampered due to heavy metal interference with activities of soil microorganisms. These toxic

Mercury toxicity in plants SpringerLink

Mercury poisoning has become a problem of current interest as a result of environmental pollution on a global scale. Natural emissions of mercury form two-thirds of the input; manmade releases form about one-third. Considerable amounts of mercury may be added to agricultural land with sludge, fertilizers, lime, and manures. The most important sources of contaminating agricultural soil have

2021-7-15  Lead can also be emitted into the environment from industrial sources and contaminated sites, such as former lead smelters. While natural levels of lead in soil range between 50 and 400 parts per million, mining, smelting and refining activities have resulted in substantial increases in lead

Air Quality Lead

2021-9-15  Lead (or Pb in the periodic table) is a naturally occurring heavy metal that is found in the Earth’s crust. Lead can be released into soil, air and water through soil erosion, volcanic eruptions, sea spray and bushfires. The natural concentration of lead in the air is

Chapter 6.7 Lead World Health Organization

2013-10-10  Mass concentrations are typically used to express lead concentrations in environmental media such as air, soil or water, so that conversion factors are not necessary. Different units, such as µg/dl, µg/l and µmol/l, are used, however, to characterize lead concentrations in blood. Multiplication by 0.048 gives the µg/dl equivalent in µmol/l.

Lead (Pb) and water Lenntech

Lead limits plant chlorophyll synthesis. Nevertheless, plants can take up high levels of lead up to 500 ppm from soils. Higher concentrations negatively influence plant growth. Through plant uptake, lead enters food chains. Consequently, lead pesticide application is prohibited in most countries. Lead accumulates in organisms, sediments and sludge.
