The heavy metal in Poland between (1999-2017) shows high increasing in level of heavy metals, but all not across the WHO , while Iraq in 2016 show high level of heavy metals in Cadmium that is more than the WHO level; The heavy metal concentration in plants ability to adsorbent them. Baghdad: Mn >Ni >Pb>Cd>Cu, while Poland: Mn=Ni> Cu>Pb>Cd. The chime-remediation by EDTA was better in the silty soil and low organic matter compared to citric acid were to Pb >Cu >Zn respectively. The high lead concentration in Iraqi soils observed acidity soils.
