Abstract

Udupi district is essentially an agriculture district with more than 80% of population depends on agriculture for their livelihood whereas only 40% of the available land is used for agriculture. Paddy is the main crop raised by 75% of the cultivated area in kharif season. Swarna is one of the important west flowing rivers of Karnataka and the major source of agricultural land in Udupi. Heavy metal contamination is a major problem in the agricultural field nowadays. Hence, a study was conducted to analyze the heavy metal contamination of agricultural soils of Swarna river basin in Udupi. The studied soils were under paddy cultivation. The soil samples were found to be slightly acidic
