Fergus, I.F. (1955) A note on the arsenic toxicity in some Queensland soils. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 12 (4). pp. 95-100.



Investigations into the cause of the abnormal growth in bananas on certain soils established the presence of appreciable quantities of arsenic. The affection was shown to be associated with rock outcrops on soils derived from quartzite. Analytical results for arsenic in soils and plants are given, and tomatoes and beans are suggested as suitable indicator crops for arsenic toxicity.
