Abstract

A preliminary survey work was taken up during the year 2014-2015. Assessment of micronutrient (Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu) contamination in soil around industrial areas of Gujarat like, Vapi, Ankleshwar and Sachin. Concentration levels of the micronutrient were determined using Perkin-Elmer Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry, (ICP-MS). the result showed that the concentrations of analyzed micronutrient range from Fe content 13.6 to 29.5 mg/kg with mean value of 21.6 mg/kg, Mn content 10.3 to 21.2 mg/kg, Mn value of 14.2, Zn content 2.4 to 8.2 with mean value of 5.5 mg/kg and Cu content 2.1 to 5.6 mg/kg with mean value of 3.8 mg/kg in fields situated within the 2 km area of Ankleshwar, Sachin and Vapi GIDC. While, Fe content in fields situated in outside Fe content 13.2 to 26.0 mg/kg with mean value of and 19.6 mg/kg. Mn content 7.2 to 20.4 mg/kg mean value of 12.0 mg/kg, respectively. Zn content 2.1 to 8.6 mg/kg with mean value of 4.6 and Cu content 3.0 to 5.3 mg/kg mean value of 3.2 mg/kg. Hence the agriculture soil situated within 2 km and out-side 2 km area of Ankleshwar, Sachin and Vapi GIDC industrial area of Gujarat, dose not indicated any micronutrient contaminant regarding industrial areas it all were found below maximum permissible limit in soil.
