Abstract

Biostimulation, supplemented with phytoremediation was employed in a study aimed at evaluating the effect of both treatments on the reclamation of a petroleum-contaminated soil. Petroleum contamination of soil was simulated under controlled field conditions, biostimulation of indigenous microbes through the addition of N-P-K fertiliser and tillage was then utilised for remedial treatment.
