Abstract
In 2002, the first year of the project titled "Soil characterization and land management for production of high-value food from wheat and corn", agricultural land was surveyed in two locations. The survey covered an area of about 500 ha which was used for wheat production (location Skorenovac) and sweet corn (location Srbobran). Both locations were found to fully comply with the criteria for production of high-value food, i.e., regarding water-physical and chemical soil properties and the contents of biogenous macro and microelements heavy metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Generally, the analyzed samples showed no indication of increased radioactivity that could jeopardize food production. The measured concentrations of 137Cs, taking into consideration the transfer factors of that isotope into plants, should not endanger the safety of the produced food.
