Grass Growth in Mining Wastes with Compost and Endophyte Additions

Phytostabilization reduces the mobility of inorganic contaminants by establishing or enhancing plant growth. For small, remote, or abandoned mines, phytostabilization may reduce potential environmental hazards, provided plants can establish and grow. We grew a widespread perennial grass in mining wastes with and without soil and microbial amendments to determine whether we could improve plant establishment and growth. Data are provided in CSV format.
