In the present world, where there are high technological advancements, there are serious issue of soil and water pollution with contaminants like heavy metals, antibiotics, hormones, dyes, and petroleum products. Hydroponic experiments were performed to test the ability of Brassica juncea to phytoremediate copper and ciprofloxacin. It was found that B.juncea can remediate higher concentrations (15-30 ppm) of copper more effectively as compared to higher concentrations of ciprofloxacin. In addition to this, it was also observed that lower concentrations (5-10 ppm) of ciprofloxacin can be remediated more effectively than lower concentrations of copper.
