Abstract

The current study aims to identify soil pollutants from heavy metals as they were taken 23 soil samples and
divided into six regions lies in Baghdad governorate, they included (Amiriya, Sayyidia, Yarmouk, Naffak
Al-Shurtah, Palestine Street, Adhamiya). The ratio of heavy metals measured in these soils and it observed
that iron has the highest average of values and It was in Amiriya city and it reached to 287.67ppm and
highest Zn average was in Adhamiya city and it reached to 45.67ppm and the highest average of Mn in
the Amiriyya city and it was 65.25ppm, while pb made highest average values in Adhamiya city and it
was 33.53ppm, while copper recorded the highest average values in Saidia and it reached to 18.57ppm.
Finally, both cadmium and nickel recorded high average values in Saidia city and it was (4.42-68.05) ppm,
respectively, moreover Heavy metals values compared with standard, as the values of Fe, Zn, Cu, pb, Ni,Mn,
were within the allowed limits in the soil, for as for Cd it was not within limits standard.
