Abstract

Pot and field experiments were conducted to find out the effects of lime application on growth and Cd uptake of paddy rice in Cd added and contaminated soils. Lime application to soil-applied Cd could reduce Cd content in brown rice as well as increasing rice yields compared to that of no lime. The optimum requirement of lime to maintain Cd content in brown rice below 0.4 ppm (precaution concentration) were 56,381 and 512kg/10a at 3, 6 and 12 ppm of Cd in soil by pot experiment and 142.7 and 623.9kg/10a at 1.5 and 5.4 ppm of Cd in soil by field trial, respectively. The recommendable soil pH before transplanting to keep the Cd content in brown rice below 0.4 ppm were 5.2, 7.2 and 7.5 at 3, 6 and 12 ppm of Cd in soil, respectively.
