Enhancing copper and lead bioaccumulation in rapeseed by adding hemp shives as soil natural amendments

The current study reveals the results of a phytoremediation process applied to a multi metal contaminated soil, located in close proximity to an energy power plant. Phytoremediation process was studied using the rapeseed cultivation, both in the presence and absence of hemp shives, considered as po...
