  • Cadmium accumulation in agricultural soils

    Salmanzadeh, Mahdiyeh (The University of Waikato, 2017)
    Cadmium (Cd) has accumulated in New Zealand (NZ) soils as a result of phosphate fertiliser application. Cadmium is a biotoxic heavy metal and can be adsorbed by soil and enter the human food chain. Three objectives were ...
  • Cadmium accumulation in three contrasting New Zealand soils with the same phosphate fertilizer history

    Salmanzadeh, Mahdiyeh; Balks, Megan R.; Hartland, Adam; Schipper, Louis A. (Elsevier, 2016)
    Cadmium (Cd) concentration in New Zealand (NZ) agricultural soils has increased due to phosphate fertilizer application, but it is not clear whether soils with different properties accumulate Cd at similar rates for given ...
  • The effect of irrigation on cadmium, uranium, and phosphorus contents in agricultural soils

    Salmanzadeh, Mahdiyeh; Schipper, Louis A.; Balks, Megan R.; Hartland, Adam; Mudge, Paul Lawrence; Littler, Ray A. (Elsevier, 2017)
    Cadmium (Cd) is a toxic metal which has accumulated in New Zealand agricultural soils due to phosphate fertilizer application. Understanding the contribution of plant uptake or leaching of Cd to observed Cd losses from ...
  • Isotope Tracing of Long-Term Cadmium Fluxes in an Agricultural Soil

    Salmanzadeh, Mahdiyeh; Hartland, Adam; Stirling, Claudine H.; Balks, Megan R.; Schipper, Louis A.; Joshi, Chaitanya; George, Ejin (American Chemical Society, 2017)
    Globally widespread phosphate fertilizer applications have resulted in long-term increases in the concentration of cadmium (Cd) in soils. The accumulation of this biotoxic, and bioaccumulative metal presents problems for ...
