How to interpret the occurrence of slow absorption of fertilizers and biofertilizers to dissolving.of the total respondents farmers.That any of the three techniques have heard them and knew of the farmers.All of the calculated bioconcentration factors were lower than one indicating the low amount of accumulation of heavy metals in wheat and barley.One of the main food items in many countries around the world are cereals such as wheat, rice, barley, rye, corn etc.Among them, wheat and rice accounts for parts of the total food consumption of the world population. Due to the high tolerance of wheat and barley against elevated levels of heavy metals in the soil, they have been proposed for the phytoremedication of heavy metal contaminated soils in earlier researches however, this accumulation can pose a high risk to the health of consumers as well.As wheat and barley are considered as staple products so, the health risk associated with their consumption is of great importance in view of the health of local people.There have been multiple studies on the levels of heavy metals in wheat and barley in all around of the world.As a whole, mean concentrations of all the heavy metals were lower in the cereals as compared with the vegetable crops.Despite these lower concentrations, the health risk of cereal consumption was higher which may be due to higher proportion of cereals in diet.It was concluded that soils weakly restricted the mobility of heavy metals to roots whereas plant physiology restricted the transfer of heavy metals from roots to shoots.The main objectives were in sampling locations in the study area to <a href="http://www.targetmol.com/compound/Daptomycin"></a> investigate the extent of heavy metal   pollution and soil to plant transfer of these elements in wheat and barley to study the health risk of heavy metals via consumption of wheat grains for the adults and children.The wheat plants were sampled randomly from sampling locations, in which eight samples from grains, eight samples from leaves and stalks and three composite samples from aerial parts were prepared while for the case of barley only grains were sampled from eight sampling locations.Topsoil samples were collected from the same sampling locations to take into account the contribution of soil to the pollution of plants and calculate the associated bioconcentration factor as well.In laboratory, the collected soil samples were airdried and sieved through a mm stainless steel mesh to remove stones and plant roots.Wheat and barley samples were threshed manually, with glumes and dust was removed whereas no washing of grains was performed.The significant difference among soil groups related to each plant part was considered using ANOVA test.All of the statistical tests in this study were performed by SPSS software.CF is the median concentration of a heavy metal in wheat grain in which the per capita wheat consumption is about kg per year old it was assumed to be that of adults; ED is the exposure duration; BW is the average body weight, and AT is the average exposure time for noncarcinogenic effects, potential noncancer effects may be a concern.
