Heavy metal accumulation in cabbage and soil irrigated with different concentration of open dumping yard leachate in Bangalore

Kiran SC, Nagarajaiah C, Mohan Kumar TL

As world transforming with an advance science and technology, the generation of waste and standard of living are also increasing in a parallel way. The disposal of waste is becoming a menace due to its negative effect on environment if not managed scientifically, specially the leachates generated from landfills or dumping yard. The leachates generated in three seasons from open dumping yard, with different formulation (0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50%) treated for cabbage resulted that increase in concentration will increase in heavy metal content of cabbage and soil, and in contrast the uptake was more till 20 percent of leachate application which resulted as increase in concentration will decrease in uptake due to trans factor of heavy metals.
