A major limitation in the phytoremediation of toxic elements is the maximal level that can be accumulated by plants. Plants with the highest levels of toxic metal contents, known as “hyperaccumulators”, generally exhibit, on a dry weight basis, from about 2000 ppm (%) for more toxic elements (Cd, Pb) to above 2% for the less toxic ones ...

fixation. Iron deficiency can be induced by high levels of manganese or high lime content in soils. Iron is taken up by plants as ferrous (Fe2+) or ferric (Fe3+) ions. The function of iron in plants depends on the ready transitions between its two oxidation states in solution. Plants store iron as ferritin, a protein that encapsulates ferric iron.

Potassium (K) What is its optimum level? Plant requirements for potassium are supplied from two soil sources: exchangeable potassium that is immediately available and nonexchangeable potassium which is more slowly available. Clay soils have a higher nutrient holding capacity and need higher levels of available potassium than sandy soils.

Critical concentrations of Mn in leaves ranges from 20 to 100 ppm for most plants. High levels of Mn can be toxic to plants. Toxicity appears as marginal leaf necrosis in many plants. Concentrations of Mn on the order of 500 to 800 ppm can result in toxicity in many crops. Excess Mn in the soil solution can reduce uptake of Fe by the plant.

Ecological Soil Screening Level for Iron

Iron is essential for plant growth and is generally considered to be a micronutrient (Thompson and Troeh, 1973). Iron is considered the key metal in energy transformations needed for syntheses and other life processes of the cells. Consequently, plants regulate iron uptake. Ferrous iron is more soluble and bioavailable to plants than ferric iron.
