Phytoremediation is the term used to describe the treatment of environmental problem with green plants. The present study clearly indicates that Brassica is suitable for phytoremediation through phytoextraction method for mitigation of heavy metal especially arsenic pollution of soil by using plants as biological detoxification system. To remediate arsenic stresses on plants, the phytoremediation strategy was applied using phytoextraction technology with the hyperaccumulator plants. In this study, Abelmoschus plant was selected as hypoaccumulator and co-cultivated with Brassica (hyperaccumulator) for heavy metals.
