Abstract: This paper contains a study carried out in agricultural fields of Sanganer, Jaipur. Results are based on samples collected from five selected sites. The crop plant selected was Phaseolus mungo. The edible part of the Phaseolus mungo (black gram) contained Zinc, Copper, Nickel, Cadmium, Chromium, Lead and Cobalt concentration which varied from 13.201 mg/gm to 13.445 mg/gm, 6.023 mg/gm to 6.253 mg/gm, 5.456 mg/gm to 5.701 mg/gm, 5.325 mg/gm to 5.445 mg/gm, 6.715 mg/gm to 6.852 mg/gm, 6.405 mg/gm to 6.557 mg/gm and 5.231 mg/gm to 5.701 mg/gm respectively. The soil samples and water samples were also collected from the five selected sites and analysed for usual parameters with particular interest in heavy metals.
