A preliminary investigation of selected crop plants for cadmium uptake from various sources of commercially available fertilizer was conducted under controlled greenhouse conditions in Corvallis, Oregon. Results indicated statistically significant differences in cadmium content of plant tissue as functions of fertilizer source, mode of application, tissues analyzed, and soil type. The highest level of cadmium accumulation (6 micrograms/g dry weight) was found in lettuce grown on a course textured acid soil and fertilized at the rate of 100 micrograms P/g soil with concentrated super phosphate (CSP) containing 174 micrograms Cd/g fertilizer. It was concluded that these uptakes may be of sufficient magnitude to be of biological significance to consumer organisms. Further study was recommended.
