The content of Cd, Pb, Cu, Ni and Cr was analysed in the soil layers of 0-20 and 21-40 cm originating from four fruit growing farms localised in the area of Wielkopolska. The analyses have shown that the content of all the investigated heavy metals both in the arable soil layer and in the subsoil, was lower than their natural content in the Polish soils. The phenomenon of decreasing Cd, Cu and Pb content, and increasing Ni values in the deeper soil layers as compared to the arable layer was observed.
