Title : Application of phytoremediation in agriculture


Agricultural land productivity, especially in highly industrialized areas, has been severely reduced as a result of the constant release of toxic compounds from many human activities into the environment. Plants are described as effective organisms for remediation of contaminated environments due to their extraordinary biological properties. Some of the popular and commercial processes that have been used for years to clean up polluted areas are not eco-friendly and are expensive. This is why the emphasis is on cheaper and eco-friendly technologies that use green plants called phytoremediation. This study described phytoextraction, phytostabilization, rhizofiltration, phytodegradation and phytovolatilization as different phytoremediation techniques with examples of plants used for this purpose. Healthy soil is also clearly described as increasing crop yields and improving the vitality of humans and other organisms in the ecosystem.
