Abstract


Now a days the contamination of soil by heavy metal from industrial sources has become a serious issue. This research was conducted to observe the nutrient status and concentration of heavy metal in soil. In this work, nine soil samples were collected from three different points of the Zirani industrial area, Savar during October/ 2013. The result of pH revealed that all the soil samples were acidic in nature. The maximum value of OC % was recorded 2.13% at point 3. However, it was observed that except N the concentration of available K, P, and S in soil samples were higher than their critical level of soil chemical properties. The highest value of Pb was 0.762ppm which found at point 1 and the lowest value was 0.575ppm in point 2.0.089ppm was the highest value of Cu which was found at point 3 and the lowest value 0.065ppm was found at point 3. The maximum concentration of Zn 3.05ppm was found at point 3 whereas the lowest value was recorded 1.90ppm in point 1.The highest value for the Cd was recorded 0.235ppm which was founded at point 2 and 0.104ppm was lowest value that was founded at point 3. The result also showed that Cu and Pb concentration were relatively higher than their recommended value in soil. The abundance order of heavy metal content in soil samples were Pb>Cu>Zn>Cd which indicated that the concentration of these heavy metals were harmful for the environment and human life.
