The paper described the situation of farmland soil heavy metal pollution in China under the macro-background of paying great attention to ecological agriculture and the effects of farmland soil heavy metal pollution on the growth,yield and quality of the crops and people＇s health, as well as the causes of the pollution. The research development for the soil remediation and the safety production was also presented,including physical treatment, chemical remediation, bioremediation, selection and breeding of cultivars that accumulate lower levels of heavy metals, adjustment of cropping industrial structure and agronomic regulation, etc. The results provided a theoretical basis and a real reference for the soil remediation and the safety production. Lastly, some suggestion was brought forward for research guideline and methods of farmland soil heavy metal pollution abatement in future according to present condition.
