Heavy Metal Assessment in Capsicum annum and Cyamopsistetragonoloba Grown around Contaminated Sites in Jaipur City

Sakshi Jain, Prama Esther Soloman, S. S. Chauhan

Soil pollution, due to anthropogenic activities like industrial waste water irrigation or unsystematic dumping of solid waste, has severe consequences on the sustainability of ecological equilibrium. This study emphasizes on the effect of contaminated soil on cluster bean and green chilly which are grown in the study areas (Sanganer and Mathuradaspura) Jaipur city Rajasthan, India. The large scale and prolonged cultivation on such soil leads to accumulation of heavy metals in the plants that poses a serious risk to the human health. For this purpose, the human health risk assessment was done by estimating the bioaccumulation factor, daily dietary index, hazard quotient and hazard indices for metals like Fe, Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, Cr and Ni. The results of the study indicated that the soil of Mathuradaspura dumping ground had elevated concentration Fe, Cu Zn Cr in contrast to the soil of Sanganer industrial area where elevated concentration of Pb, Cd and Ni were found. Because of the tendency of these crop plants to accumulate heavy metals from soil and water provided for irrigation, the vegetables from these areas were found to have increased levels of heavy metals like Pb, Cd and Ni in the Sanganer agricultural areas and Cu, Zn and Ni in Mathuradaspura agricultural fields.
