About one-third areas of these problem soils in Haryana are saline and the chlorides and sulphates of sodium, calcium and magnesium are the dominating soluble salts in them (Dahiya and Laura 1988). The existing technologies on farm salinity management that work well include surface and sub-surface drainage. These are basically civil engineering technologies and are costly to install, difficult to maintain and have the problem of saline effluent management. Apart from that, under Indian

This bioremediation technology involves the repeated cropping (harvestings] of these hyperaccumulators (as has been done in the present investigations as well) until the soils have reached acceptable levels for the farmers to cultivate their regular crops since roo
