  • In the present study shacking and incubation experiment were carried out in order to evaluate the changes in heavy metal solubility in the studied soils by addition of different concentration of Ethylene dinitrilo tetra acetic acid (EDTA), Diethylene triamine penta acetic acid (DTPA), and Nitrilo tri acetic acid (NTA). The effects of EDTA, DTPA and NTA application on solubility of copper(Cu), lead(Pb), cadmium(Cd) and chromium(Cr) in soil was evaluated. In shacking experiment, maximum Cu, Pb… CONTINUE READING
