The purpose of this research was to assess the effects of irrigation on Cu, Fe, Zn, Cd and Mn accumulation with pollutted and well water in Doroodfaraman district of Kermanshah. This study was performed on wheat (root, shoot and grain) and parsley (root and shoot) with three replications as split-plot in a randomized complete block design.The accumulation of Cu, Zn, Mn and Cd in all parts of wheat in pollutted water were significantly more, but accumulation of Cu was found no significant difference. In both irrigations, the increasing of metals in root was significantly more. Moreover, the accumulation of Cu, Fe, Zn, Cd and Mn in root of wheat was as 33.1, 1554.3, 94.85, 0.557 and 494 mg/kg in pollutted water, respectively. Also, concentration of all heavy metals in all parts of parsley in pollutted water was significantly found more. In both of irrigations, the increasing concentrations of Cu, Fe, Zn and Cd in root of parsley were significantly more. Although, Mn concentration was significantly higher in shoot. The most accumulation of Cu, Zn and Cd in root of parsley was found as 35.3, 95.7 and 0.767 mg/kg, respectively. But Fe and Mn with 588.5 and 194 mg/kg belong to shoot of parsley in pollutted water. The results showed that the use of pollutted water for wheat and parsely increased the heavy metals concentration especially in the root of plants.
