Soil contamination is increasing at an alarming rate due to a number of human activities such as the release of industrial effluents, municipal wastes and waste sludge enriched with heavy metals and chemicals that contaminate surrounding environments and farming regions. Once these contaminates are enriched in our soils, they will remain a potential threat to […]
