Abstract

The anthropogenic pollution caused by heavy industries enters plants then goes through food chain and ultimately endangers human health. A preliminary survey work was taken up during the year 2014-2015. The aim of study were to estimation of micronutrients (Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu) contamination in mango leaves sample surrounding different industrial area of Gujarat like, Ankleshwar, Sachin and Vapi. The concentrations of micronutrient level were determined using Perkin-Elmer Induction Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy, (ICP-MS). the result revealed that the concentrations of analyzed micronutrient range from Fe content 491 to 990 mg/kg with mean value of 798 mg/kg, Mn content 31.5 to 97.9 mg/kg with mean value of 70.1, Zn content 12.6 to 46.5 with mean value of 31.2 mg/kg and Cu content 3.9 to 14.7 mg/kg with mean value of 8.5 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 503 to 985 mg/kg with mean value of 752 mg/kg. Mn content 32.2 to 99.7 mg/kg with mean value of 62.7 mg/kg, respectively. Zn content 20.0 to 43.0 mg/kg with mean value of 29.9 and Cu content 4.3 to 10.7 mg/kg mean value of 7.8 mg/kg. Thus the mango leaves samples value situated within 2 km and out-side 2 km area of Ankleshwar, Sachin and Vapi GIDC industrial area of Gujarat, indicated that among the micronutrient content Fe content in mango leaves nearby different industrial area were found above maximum permissible limit. While the values of other micronutrients (Mn, Zn and Cu) were found below maximum permissible limit in different industrial areas of Gujarat.
