Abstract: The aim of the present study was to examine the accumulation potential of Indian mustard (Brassica juncea var. arawali) and fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) plants in lead and nickel contaminated soil. Plants were exposed to higher concentrations of Pb and Ni (800 mg l-1). EDTA and SA were amended at 2.4 mM concentrations. Plants were harvested and oven-dried. The accumulation of Pb and Ni in plants was determined and their effects on plant growth were evaluated for both species. Seed germination rate of T. foenum-graecumplants was higher as compared to B. juncea arawali plants. In conclusion, the accumulation capacity of fenugreek was found more than Indian mustard in Pb and Ni contaminated soil.
