To understand the biogeochemical transfer of iodine, the absorbability and bioaccumulation of iodine in tested vegetables(radish, spinach and Chinese cabbage) are examined by applying iodic fertilizer composed of kelp and diatomaceous earth. The experimental results show that when iodine in soil is not excessive, the concentrations of iodine in tested vegetables increase as the content of iodine in soil increases. The absorbability and enrichment degree of iodine in various vegetable and in various parts of the same vegetable are different, which explains that the concentration of iodine in plant is determined by the plant type and by the physiological action of plant. The patience order of tested vegetables to excessive iodine is Chinese cabbage > spinach > radish. These results have theoretical and practical significance in opening up a new way for ameliorating poor iodine environment with artificial means.
