The study has analyzed the capacity of nine ramie cultivars to absorb and accumulate Cd through two years of micro-regional field.The Cd contents retained in different parts of ramie are ranked as the following: bast > stems > leaves.Ramie has the ability to accumulate large amount of Cd; under the treatment with 1.65,25 and 100 mg kg-1 of Cd, three times of ramie harvest annually remove 0.25,0.76 and 0.97 kg hm-2 a-1 of Cd respectively.
