Abstract

The presence of the macro-elements and elements in traces in the bean seed is determined byICP-AES (atomic emission spectrometric with inductive plasma). The various bean seeds are taken out of five differenttypes from some regions in the Republic of Macedonia. The results obtained refer to the analyses of 19 elementsof the group of macro and micro-elements. There is a wide concentrated range in the samples from 30286,8 mg/kg forK in the test 9 to 0,15 mg/kg for Co in the test 8. More attention is devoted to the presence of Ca, Fe and Zn in thebean seed because it is a valuable source of these macro-elements and elements in traces which are important nutritiveitems for more that 2 bilion people in the world. Therefore, the biological importance of these elements in tracesis perceived as well (their transfer and accumulation from the soil into the plants)
