Paper Title
The Content of Heavy Metals in Soils around the Industrial Area of Obilic, Kosovo

The objective of this study was to define the content of heavy metals in agricultural land of the municipalities Obilic area in Kosovo. The study was carried out during 2015. Sampling was carried out on agricultural lands of Obiliq areas, which were cultivated with the culture of Capsicum Annum. Elements analyzed were: As, Cr, Ni, Pb and Zn. Heavy metals were analyzed according to Atomic Absorber Spectrophotometry (AAS) at Technologies Transfer Center in FusheKruje. The analyzes have demonstrated lower values of As with a minimum and maximum of 39.88 mg/kg and 53.43 respectively and higher values of Zn with a minimum of 107.29 and a maximum of 736.35 mg/kg. The average content of heavy metals has resulted in this order: Zn> Cr> Ni>Pb> As. Considering the perennial cultivation with Capsicum Annum of these lands and the continuing impact of industrial activities in the area, especially in Obiliq, it is necessary to track and analyze the content of heavy metals and the quality of vegetables consumed by the population.
