Variations in transfer factor among the different vegetables may be attributed to differences in the concentration of metals in the soil and differences in element uptake by different vegetables [28].
Hence, most of the metals might be affected by anthropogenic activities based on the transfer factor calculated in the current study.
In our analysis, we focused on or looked for developmental factors and transfer factors as proposed by Mohan and Lo (1985), and further following their theoretical framework, we considered the context of the participants' academic, linguistic, cultural, and educational background.
Mohan and Lo (1985) suggested that a general model of L2 composition should include both developmental and transfer factors.
Two of the 15 proposed transfer factors had mean response values significantly greater than three, suggesting that, in general, the respondents believe that neither advanced manufacturing centers nor outside contractors are essential in facilitating the transfer of AMT within their divisions.
Relative to the hypothesized implementation factors and transfer factors we offer the following conclusions:
Bioaccumulation factor, transfer factor in plant organs and geo-accumulation index of soil pollution from Cucumis sativus farm
Generally, transfer factor within the organs was less than one.
