Abstract:

This study has been conducted to determine the concentration of heavy metals Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Copper (Cu) and Iron (Fe) in soil and some grown vegetables of Jagdalpur. (Bastar) Comparing the results of heavy metals in soil and vegetables by using Atomic Absorption Spectrometer, (Perkin Elmer A Analyst 400) double beam with their respective natural level. Fe concentration varied considerably in tomato and chilli are crossed permissible limits. Copper, Lead and Cadmium concentration are below than the safe limit. Overall, this study indicates that the soil and vegetables sample are contaminated by toxic heavy metals.
