    The growth, development and yield of important crop plants like soybean (Glycine max) are constantly under threat by continuous inputs of cadmium in the biosphere as a result of various industrial activities. This study investigated the level to which, addition of nitrogen fertilization can enhance plant survival, growth and yield development in a cadmium-polluted. Three accessions of Glycine max (TGm-1, TGm-2 and TGm-3) were sown in a 12 mg/kg-cadmium polluted, which was thereafter amended with Urea (FU), Ammonia (FA), and Ammonium Nitrate (FN) singly and in combinations of equal proportions. A non-fertilized cadmium-pollutedpolluted soil and a general control constituted the negative and positive controls. Results showed that although N application did not enhance yield dispositions of soybean in cadmium-polluted-polluted soil, significant impact .. View More»
