Abstract—To compare the dry matter yield and iron uptake of Brassica chinensis, soil iron content at 15, 23, 31, 39 days after transplanting the seedlings of Brassica chinensis with respect to different concentration of landfill leachate concentrations at 0, 33.3, 50 and 100% application on soil were measured. Treated B. chinensis with 100%, 50% and 33.3% leachates increased in dry matter yield by 59.2%, 66.4% and 95.7% respectively compared to control irrigated water. The highest and lowest iron uptake by B. chinensis observed at fifteen and twenty-three days after transplanting respectively. The iron concentrated in soil showed significant differences only at twenty tree days after transplanting the seedlings of B. chinensis to 100, 0, 33.3 and 50% of landfill leachate concentrations respectively.

Index Terms—Brassica chinensis, iron, landfill leachate.
