In order to assess the effects of metal interactions on plant growth, a greenhouse experiment was conducted, in which spring barley was grown for 48 days in a soil to which cadmium, copper, lead and zinc were added singly and in combination. Plant growth was measured as shoot and root dry matter production. At the end of the experiment the plant material was analysed for metal uptake and the soil was extracted with CaCl(2) solution, to measure the plant-available metal content. The most… CONTINUE READING
