The experiment is conducted during Winter season 2009-2010 in the Research
Station of College of Agriculture Al-Muthana University. Cadmium as a heavy
metals is applied at the rates ( 0 , 3 , and 6 mg/kg soil ) as CdCl2 , while organic
matter ( O M ) mixture are have been added at mixing rate of ( sand , 1sand : 1 )
O M ) and 1 sand : 2 ( O M ) as cow dung ) . The experiment is laid out in CRD
with 3 replicates in 27 pots . Data have been collected on plant height ,stem
diameter ,shoot wt , shoot DM , root length and root shoot ratio .The addition of
Cd has a significant deleterious effect on all the properties except root/shoot
ratio , while the O M has a significant effect on plant height and Root length
only . There is a significant interaction between some properties
