Abstract

The metal-binding capacities of two regional soils of southern Italy were evaluated. A volcanic soil and a sample of “terra rossa” were treated with sewage sludge spiked with CdSO4 to obtain 0, 2, 4, 8 and 16 ppm of total cadmium in the soil. Cadmium uptake and cadmium effects on dry-matter production of rye grass, spinach, dwarf bean and radish grown in the two soils and the effects of cadmium on soil microflora were investigated. Plant and microbial responses were considered in relation to three different analytical methods ...
