The field experiments were conducted to evaluate the accumulation of heavy metals in soil and plant parts. The protocol based on DTPA (Diethylene triamine penta acetic acid) assisted extraction of heavy metal was used to find out the amount of different heavy metals. The relative level of accumulation of heavy metal was determined in response to sewage irrigation and ground water irrigation of soil and different crops. The amount of heavy metals like Cd, Cr, Cu and Ni was observed to higher
