Sud et al.  propose the use of agricultural waste materials as biosorbents of heavy metals as a low cost and highly efficient technology, because the functional groups present in agricultural waste biomass (acetamido, alcoholic, carbonyl, phenolic, amido, amino and sulphydryl groups) have affinity for heavy metals ions to form metal complexes or chelates that immobilize the contaminants through reactions of chemisorption, complexation, adsorption on surface, diffusion through pores and ion exchange.
Biostimulation is not applicable in sites where high concentrations of inorganic salts, heavy metals, or organic compounds are present, as these hinder microbial growth. Lastly, the calculation of waterbased solutions through the soil may increase contaminant mobility and necessitate treatment of underlying groundwater. Preferential colonization by microbes may occur causing clogging of nutrient and water injection wells. Recent studies on the application of biostimulation for degrading a variety of contaminants unanimously advocate the merit of this technique.
In soil, the property of Pb to bind to clay soil particles and organic matter, and its inclusion in insoluble precipitates significantly reduces the bioavailability of Pb to the plant . This is true of other metals as well. For this reason, biological mechanisms that enhance metal bioavailability are being investigated. For instance, in response to nutrient deficiencies, plants can secrete metal-chelating molecules (phytosiderophores) that chelate and solubilize soil-bound metals such as Fe, Mn, Cu, and Zn .
