The bioaccumulation of trace elements (TEs) in crops consumed by humans can reduce food production as a consequence of photosynthetic damage in plants and cause several diseases in humans. Liming is a soil management strategy designed to alleviate soil acidity and mitigating these problems by reducing the TE bioavailability. In this study, we evaluated the effect of liming on photosynthesis, growth, and bioaccumulation of barium (Ba), cadmium (Cd), copper (Cu), nickel (Ni), or zinc (Zn) in lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.
