ABSTRACT

In this study the effect of (Cadmium) Cd metal on essential mineral ions nutrients of Vigna radiata (bean) plants has been examined. Results have been explained in relation with soil microorganism and acquisition of mineral nutrients like Na, K, Ca, Mg, Mn, PO4 and Fe. Thus environments, which are polluted by toxic metal can pose a challenge to nutrients acquisition by plant roots and threaten to survival of many beneficial microbes including the roots of plants themselves. Analysis of roots showed that Rhizobium species were effected by heavy metal Cd which results in the inhibition of nodulation of leguminous plant and decreases in the acquisition of mineral ions concentration at all concentration of cadmium.
