Some heavy metals are micronutrients but most are not essential for plants and humans. All heavy metals are toxic if their concentrations in soil systems are relatively high. Unfortunately, chemical fertilizers are not free from heavy meta1 contaminants. The use of chemical fertilizers in agricultural lands should therefore be restricted by their heavy metal contents, particularly if used in acid soils where heavy-metal solubilities and toxicities are particularly high. Heavy metal contents should also be considered in manufacturing chemical fertilizers for agriculture.
