Ayman M. El-Ghamry, Abid Subhani, Wael Mohd, Huang Changyong and Xie Zhengmiao    

Abstract: The wide utilization of copper in agriculture and industrial processes in addition to many other uses associated with human activities causes both point and non-point source pollution of the environment with copper. Although copper is relatively non-toxic to mammals and essential micronutrient necessary for a wide variety of prokaryotic and eukaryotic metabolic activities, is toxic to all organisms if present in elevated concentrations. Copper pollution in agricultural posing soils can adversely affect the living part of soil organic matter serious threat to sustained food and fiber production.
