Abstract The effect of accumulation of cadmium in the topsoil on cadmium contents in crops is evaluated for field scale situations, using a model that links cadmium input, plant uptake, and leaching to cadmium accumulation in the rootzone. Measurements of pH and organic matter content, which regulate sorption behaviour to a large extent, show significant field-scale variability. Taking this heterogeneity into account, the probability that the cadmium concentration in part of the plants exceeds quality standards is compared with exceedance of the distribution average.
