Instrumental neutron activation analysis was used to determine concentrationsof 28 elements in soil, roots and leaves of wheat seedlings. To enhance theuptake of the elements, wheat seeds were treated by bacteria Cellulomas sp.32. In addition, a small amount of CaCl2 was added to the soil.The micro-organisms affected uptake of nutrients in such a way as to increaseconcentrations of elements both in roots and leaves of plants. As a result,elemental composition of soil in rhizoshpere zone was also changed. On theother hand, there was no important variation found in element uptake afteraddition of Ca to the soil.
