Some Elements of Biologization in Crops Production on Radioactively Contaminated Areas


The modern environmental and biological approaches to the selection of field agricultural crops for cultivation at contaminated areas are considered. It is established that the satiation of rotations with agricultural crops differed by potentially low capacity to accumulate 13Cs can significantly extend the areal of radioactively contaminated lands use for the production of safe products. The influence of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on radiocaesium uptake by plants is analyzed. The ability of arbuscular mycorrhiza to modify significantly radiocaesium accumulation by agricultural crops is found.
