Soils contain various metals in style of inorganic compounds or they will stay secure with organic matter, clays or as oxides. The spreading of urban waste and waste sludge in agricultural fields has been a standard apply since decades. The focus was to work out analysis and compare the heavy metals concentration level in 2 elite vegetables (chilies and potatoes) at ten numerous vegetable study areas in Indore in Madhya Pradesh (India). Results of heavy metal determination in elite vegetables and the corresponding soil samples of pot experiments disclosed a transparent dependence on the concentrations of metals more to the pots. Correlation reflects that the uptake trend is close to same because of solutions were more in increasing metal concentrations. Percent uptake of various metals from soil to the plant components additionally show that the pots wherever p.c uptake was higher, were at risk of uptake of that metal and even a smaller increase in level of these metals in soil will cause abundant higher uptake. The physiochemical conditions of soil also are of nice concern for the uptake of heavy metals by the plants
