Hydroponic nutrients, fertilizers, and similar products can contain notable quantities of heavy metals, such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and nickel. These heavy metals can accumulate in plant tissues. Some U.S state departments of agriculture monitor the concentrations of heavy metals, in agricultural products, to protect human health and natural resources from toxicity.
