(2017): Effect of Lupinus albus L. root activities on As and Cu mobility after addition of iron-based soil amendments
CHEMOSPHERE. 2017; 182: 373-381. FullText FullText_BOKU

Arsenic and Cu mobility was investigated in the rhizosphere of Lupinus albus L. grown in an iron amended contaminated soil. White lupin was grown in rhizobags in contaminated soil either left untreated or amended with iron sulphate plus lime (Fe + lime) or biochar (Fe + BC). Porewater was monitored in rhizosphere and bulk soil throughout the experiment and the extractable fraction of several elements and As and Cu plant uptake was analysed after 48 days. The distribution of As, Cu, P and Fe in the lupin rhizosphere was evaluated with chemical images obtained by laser ablation-ICP-MS analysis of diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) gels. The treatments effectively reduced the soluble and extractable As and Cu fractions in the bulk soil, but they did not affect plant uptake. In all cases, soluble As was slightly enhanced in the rhizosphere. This difference was more pronounced in the Fe + lime treated rhizosphere soil, where an increase of pH as well as extractable As and Fe concentrations were also observed. Chemical imaging of the lupin rhizosphere also showed slightly higher As- and Fe-DGT fluxes around lupin roots grown in the non-amended soil. Our findings indicate As and Fe co-solubilisation by lupin root exudates, likely as a response to P deficiency. Arsenic mobilisation occurred only in the rhizosphere and was not decreased by the amendments. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
