Usage

Hydroponic nutrients and other fertilizers can contain significant amounts of heavy metals, such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and nickel. These heavy metals can accumulate in plant tissues. Several state departments of agriculture regulate the concentrations of heavy metals, in agricultural products, to protect human health and natural resources from toxicity.
