Use of mycorrhiza in soil remediation: A review

Mycorrhiza-assisted remediation (MAR) is a sustainable method of remediation that uses natural organisms for soil remediation. It is a technique that not only ensures the removal of soil pollutants but also improves the structure of the soil and helps in plant nutrient acquisition. Thus, it helps in vegetation/revegetation of polluted soils after treatment. MAR can be used for the removal of both organic and inorganic...
