Shallow tube well (STW) water, often contaminated with arsenic (As), is used extensively in Bangladesh for irrigating rice fields in the dry season, leading to potential As accumulation in soils. In the current study the consequences of arsenic from irrigation water and direct surface (0–15 cm) soil application were studied under field conditions with wetland rice culture over 2 years. Twenty PVC cylinders (30-cm length and 30-cm diameter) were installed in field plots to evaluate the mobility… CONTINUE READING
