Interaction of glassy fertilizers and Cd2+ ions in terms of soil pollution neutralization
Abstract: Immobilization of cadmium contamination in soils by precipitation of nonassimilable for plants Cd-phosphates was considered. Glassy fertilizer of controlled release rate of the nutrients for plants as a source of phosphate anions was applied. The negative role of Cd complexing citric acid solution simulating the natural soil conditions, which inhibits the Cd-phos-phates formation, was stated.
