Due to the irreversibility of heavy metal pollution, the presence of heavy metals in farmland soil is associated with severe ecological risks that endanger both the environment and human health. Cadmium (Cd) and mercury (Hg) are two toxic heavy metals found widely in polluted soil. Cd is not readily fixed in the soil and is therefore easily accumulated by plants, while Hg has a wide range of pollution sources. The aims of this study were to explore the spatial variation in Cd and Hg concentrations in farmland soil in Poyang Lake Plain,...
