The degree of soil loading with heavy metals (Cd, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn) has been studied after 39 years of fertilization with nitrogen and phosphorus on a Faeoziom cambic soil in Drăgăneşti-Vlasca village in Teleorman. Nitrogen from nitrogen nitrate was applied at doses of 0, 50, 100, 150, 200 kgN/ha, and phosphorus from superphosphate at doses of 0, 40, 80, 120, 160 kg P/ha. The soil samples were harvested at a depth of 0-20 cm after harvesting the wheat crop. The heavy metal content did not suffer statistically significant changes following long-term fertilization with mineral fertilizers with nitrogen and phosphorus. No cadmium accumulation process was observed following the application of doses of 40-160 kg/ha P205 annually for 39 years. The cadmium values in the soil oscillated between 0.9 and 1.2 mg/kg, the loading level being assessed as normal-weak, the copper values were in the low loading range, the manganese is within the range of normal-weak, and copper and manganese in the soil content are within the normal range.
