Abstract

This work represents a research of Ca, Mg, Fe and Zn contents in fresh aboveground biomass of wild nettle. The samples of wild nettle were collected from different localities in South Banat during 2008. year. Investigations included three localities with different soil types: chernozem with signs of gley in loess (Starčevo), marsh dark soil (Ivanovo) and alluvium soil (Dubovac). Laboratory determinations of Ca, Mg, Fe and Zn were carried out by atomic absorption spectrophotometric (AAS) techniques. The contents of chemical elements were compared with recent investigations in order to confirme the importance of nettle cultivation for production different types products. The highest values of Ca (890 mg 100 g-1) and Zn (10,02 mg 100 g-1) were obtained in samples of wild nettle which were collected from marsh dark soil. The highest values of Mg (124 mg 100 g-1) and Fe (49,13 mg 100 g-1)  were determined in plants from chernozem with signs of gley in loess. The significant contents of chemical elements in wild nettle biomass have not only economic but also a great ecological significance as evidenced by its place in organic agriculture.
