Respuesta de la soja a elementos tóxicos (cloruros, arseniatos, fluoruros y vanadatos) presentes naturalmente en aguas y suelos

Ana Muzlera Klappenbach, Carolina Bustingorri, Raúl S. Lavado


Las fuentes de elementos tóxicos que afectan a los cultivos se clasifican, según su origen, en antrópicas o naturales. En el presente trabajo se consideran elementos tóxicos de origen natural aunque movilizados por la actividad del hombre, y vinculados principalmente con las aguas subterráneas. Estos elementos tóxicos suelen ingresar a los suelos y desde allí son absorbidos por las raíces, se traslocan y se acumulan en las plantas. El objetivo de este trabajo es evaluar el efecto de cloruros, arseniatos, fluoruros y vanadatos sobre la composición y la producción de soja.

Palabras clave

toxicidad por riego; elementos tóxicos; salinidad
