Soil and Plant Nutrient Testing Laboratory: Soil Lead ,, Soil Lead Contamination Lead is naturally present in all soils It generally occurs in the range of 15 to 40 parts lead per million parts of soil (ppm), or 15 to 40 milligrams lead per kilogram of soil (mg/kg) Pollution can increase soil lead levels to several thousand ppm The major cause of soil lead contamination in populated areas is the weathering, chipping, scraping.Phytoremediation, Researchers have also discovered a mechanism in plants that allows them to grow even when the pollution concentration in the soil is lethal for non-treated plants Some natural, biodegradable compounds, such as exogenous polyamines, allow the plants to tolerate concentrations of pollutants 500 times higher than untreated plants, and to absorb .Lead Content of Soil, Plants, Foods, Air, and Chinese Herb ,, Lead first enters the food supply in significant quantities by contamination of the soil and by lead dust accumulating on the plants The lead is taken up by plants through roots and leav The plant materials are eaten by humans, and animals that are eaten by humans gain lead from the plants ,Toxicity, mechanism and health effects of some heavy metals, Nov 15, 2014· A plant with high lead concentration fastens the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), causing lipid membrane damage that ultimately leads to damage of chlorophyll and photosynthetic processes and suppresses the overall growth of the plant (Najeeb et al, 2014)Can arsenic in soil and water contaminate home, Can arsenic in soil and water contaminate home-grown vegetables? , of the concentration of a chemical in a plant to the concentration in soils When the BAF is greater than 10, a plant accumulates a chemical , likely to lead to plant damage ..
