Abstract
In five consecutive years lettuce, spinach. spring wheat, endive and.maize were grown in pots and the effects of 'native' and soil-applied Zn and Cd on plant Zn and Cd concentrations were studied. The normal interactive pattern was antagonistic, Zn reducing plant Cd uptake, and conversely, but less so. Only in loam soil Zn and Cd were synergistic to some extent. plant Zn uptake increasing with applied Cd.
