Abstract:
An economically physeable and emerging technique for rejeunivate /refreshment of agro ecological system contaminated with heavy metals. The study was conducted to determine the accumulation of heavy metals in Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) in research farm department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry. Heterogeneous accumulation of heavy metals was found potato. However metal accumulation varied in the tuber, (Potato). The concentration of Chromium 4.08 µg g-1, Copper 0.68 µg g-1, Cadmium 2.44 µg g-1, Lead 1.21 µg g-1, and Zinc 4.08 µg g-1 was recorded, was found significant in the treatment T5 50% RDF NPK + 50% RDF solid liquid waste. Plants were found to have an enrichment coefficient which reflects their heavy metal accumulation potential. Findings suggest that the 50% recommended dose of fertilizers with 50% solid liquid waste may be used for rejuvenation of land contaminated toxic metals and higher yielding of crops from economical point of view.
