Iron deficiency is most widespread among plant nutrients. Nowadays, different materials such as inorganic salts, organic chelates, soil acidifying materials and industrial wastes are used to correct iron deficiency. Slag and convertor sludge of steel factories are among the industrials wastes for this purpose. These materials contain considerable amount of iron produced in large quantities every year. Application of slag and convertor sludge to soil may affect bioavailability and chemical forms of iron in soil. Sequential chemical extraction technique has been widely used to examine these chemical forms, and thus to better understand the processes that influence element availability. It was, therefore, the objective of this study to investigate the application effect of slag and convertor sludge of Esfahan Steel Mill on the chemical forms of iron, distribution of these forms and bioavailability of iron in surface (0-20cm) and subsurface (20-45cm) soil of three research fields. The results showed that more than 99% of the applied Fe occurred in residual, Fe oxide and hydroxide and free forms. Application of slag and convertor sludge for three consecutive years increased chemical forms and DTPA extractable iron in surface and subsurface soil of three fields.
