The present study was conducted in a potted experiment to examine the effects of chromium pollution on absorption of mineral nutrients and some morphophysiological attributes of two sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) hybrids (FH-331 and FH-259) in the presence and absence of ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA) used as a chelating agent. Four concentrations of chromium (Cr³⁺) i.e., 0, 20, 30 and 40 mg kg⁻¹ with and without 0.3 g kg⁻¹ , EDTA as chelating agent were applied to 25-day-old sunflower plants. A gradually decreasing trend in absorption of all minerals and other parameters studied were observed. Different treatments of Cr³⁺ as well as Cr³⁺ and EDTA significantly reduced root and shoot fresh weight; however, root, shoot and achene Cr³⁺ contents of two sunflowers hybrids under higher chromium and EDTA stress varied significantly whereas movement of Cr³⁺ contents to leaves was non-significant. Absorption of Na⁺, K⁺, N₂ and P through roots and shoots significantly reduced with increasing concentration of Cr³⁺ treatments. In fact addition of EDTA to the medium further enhanced the toxicity of chromium.
