Various single extractant (DTPA, EDTA, NH(4)NO(3), CaCl(2), and NaNO(3)) was used to evaluate the bioavailability of heavy metals from tannery wastewater contaminated soil and translocation of metals to the plant of Brassica juncea L. Czern. (var. Vaibhav). The extraction capacity of the metals was found in the order: EDTA>DTPA>NH(4)NO(3)>CaCl(2)>NaNO(3). Cluster analysis between different extractants showed close relationship between DTPA, CaCl(2), NH(4)NO(3) except EDTA and NaNO(3), which… CONTINUE READING
