This paper presents the results of an investigation into the rate of Cd accumulation and changes in forms of Cd in a soil that has been subjected to long-term superphosphate fertiliser application. Results indicate that there had been a significant accumulation of Cd in the soil during the past 44 years. On the high fertiliser treatment (376 kg superphosphate ha-1 yr-1), Cd was estimated to have accumulated at a rate of 7.8 g ha-1 yr-1. During the course of the trial, there was an increase in… CONTINUE READING
