Abstract: Cu ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid and Cu diethylenetriamine pentaacetate along with superphosphate and Mussoorie rock phosphate were applied to the soil at various dosages. Uptake and translocation of N, K, P, Ca, Mg, Cd, Zn, Cu and Fe were determined in shoots and seeds of tritium sativum. A pot experiment was conducted to investigate the uptake of these metals from experimentally contaminated sandy loam soil of by wheat. It was found from the study that the increasing level of chelates increased the organic carbon, organic matter, and micronutrient, i.e., Fe, Cu and Zn in the soil. Further it was noticed that the test combination increases the N, P and K content in soil. From the study it was concluded that the increased in chemical constituents in the shoot and seeds of wheat crop mostly depended on the medium and higher levels of chelates.
