This study was carried out to measure heavy metals in vegetables that irrigated by polluted water in Hamadan farms in 1996. The heavy metals were Pb, Ni, Ca and Cr. These factors were compared with those of the vegetable irrigated by healthy water. 90 samples were chosen randomly in 3 months i.e. 30 samples per month. Data was analyzed using SPSS.

The results showed significant differences for Cr and Ni between two groups,
P-value were 0.001 and 0.045 respectively.

The difference in Cr concentration between two groups was significant in August and October with P-value 0.006 and 0.003 respectively. The mean of Pb concentration was significantly different between two groups in October (P=0.018).
