Effect of Climatic Factors on Copper and its Antagonist Contents in the Soil

Karim Amininia, Amirparviz Rezaeisaber and Ali Rezaie    

Abstract: Copper deficiency in ruminants occurs either as a primary or as a secondary deficiency. Most of the copper deficiencies in livestock which occur naturally are conditioned by the presence of dietary factors that interfere with the absorption or utilization of copper by the animal. The main subjective of this study was to evaluation of effect of climatic factors on copper and its antagonist contents in the soil. In this study, during the seasons, researchers aimed to recording the rainfall, environmental temperature, soil temperature and humanity. In this study, researchers collected about 72 soil samples (18 samples in each season) from different areas of Ahar city, East Azerbaijan province of Iran. Then, samples were sent to the laboratory and the trace elements content of soil samples was measured by atomic absorption method. Results showed that Cu, Zn, Fe, Ca, S, Co and Mo was 20.36, 7.3, 43.73, 173.26, 596, 10.69 and 16.12, respectively. In conclusion can be conclude that present study is unique because there was no documented literatures about cu and its antagonist content in the soil of East Azerbaijan area. So, researchers suggests that there is more study needs to conclude about this matter.
