Abstract: A study was made of the uptake of metals by an East Asian vegetable, Brassica chinensis. Different levels of combined metals (Pb + Cd), (Pb + Cu) and (Cd + Cu) at 0.1, 1.0 and 10.0 μg/ml were applied to nutrient solutions. The concentrations of the metals Pb, Cd, Cu, Fe and Zn in various plant parts were measured. Plant growth was also monitored. Of the three mixtures of metals, (Cd + Cu) was the most toxic. A synergistic toxic effect was also observed in the (Pb + Cd) combination. The (Pb + Cu) combination appeared to have no interactive effect. © 1986.
