In the present work, the uptake of some heavy metals by wheat grown on soils artificialcontaminated with Cd, Cr, Cu,Ni and Pb individually and in combination,was studied in a pot experiments. The samples were prepared by wet digestion and analyzed by ICP-OES and the obtained results were discussed based on the values of the obtained concentrations, enrichment factors (EFs) and translocation factors (TFs).
