Cropland and noncropland soils were sampled to determine levels of elemental mercury present in the upper three inches of soil. Results showed no difference in mercury levels between cropland and noncropland soils. Levels detected compared closely to levels found in similar studies. Actual mean levels of mercury residues in soils of the eastern United States ranged from 0.05 to 0.10 ppm.
