    Apr 01,  · Liming is often recommended to control metal uptake in plants. In western Washington, where silage corn (Zea mays L.) is ofted fed to dairy cattle, studies were conducted to determine the effect of liming on the uptake of Zn, and especially Cd from land-applied sewage dirkbraeckmanvenice2017.com by: Feb 01,  · Free Online Library: Effects of sewage sludge on growth and nutrients uptake by Hordum vulgare as affected by two species of arbuscular-mycorrhizal fungi.(Original Article, Report) by "Advances in Environmental Biology"; Environmental issues Fungi Growth Physiological aspects Research Mycorrhizae Mycorrhizas Sewage sludge Sludge.

    of zinc in cereal grains; genetic biofortification uses specially-bred crops which have been selected on the basis of their ability to concentrate zinc and other micronutrients in their edible parts, such as grains. Biosolids another name for sewage sludge – the insoluble residue from waste water treatment. Land application of sewage sludge can successively increase heavy metals availability in soil, uptake by plants and accumulation in plant tissues. Thus, concentration in plant tissue can be used as an indicator of heavy metals transfer from soils amended with sludge to plants and of the entry of hazardous elements in the food dirkbraeckmanvenice2017.com by: 3.
