Abstract

The purpose of this research was to determine the correlation between content of Pb, Cd, Zn, Cu, Mn and Fe in soil and tobacco leaves from production regions from Skopje. 39 soil samples and 117 leaves were taken for carrying out this research. Some tested soils have Mn and Fe content above the permitted limits that is probably result of the secondary pollution (traffic and industry). Lead, cadmium, manganese and iron content in tobacco raw from several smaller production sites are above maximum allowable concentration, but are close to the obtained results by several researchers. According to correlation analyses, clay and humus have prominent influence on the content of the Pb, Cd, Cu and Zn in the soil, and weak correlation only with the lead and copper in the tobacco leaves. There is no significant correlation between the content of heavy metals in the soil and in tobacco leaves.
