Phanindra Deka, Abdul Mannan Sheikh
Abstract
A study was carried out with respect to trace metal composition of locally grown cauliflower from dominant agricultural areas of Rangamati, Ramhari, Kowpati, Tangla, Besimari and Balugaon in Darrang and Udalguri districts of Assam. The two districts are situated about 65 km and 115 km away from the city centre, Guwahati, Assam. All the six areas of Assam are well known as agricultural producers. Along with samples of cauliflowers, soil samples were also collected for analysis of trace metals.A comparative relationship was seen between soil trace metalsand that of cauliflowers. It was found that the soil growing cauliflowers had Co: 664.75 mg/kg, Cr: 7.85 mg/kg, Cu: 40.26 mg/kg, Fe: 2563.55 mg/kg, Mn: 445.63 mg/kg, Ni: 43.82 mg/kg, and Zn: 124.40 mg/kg.
