Phytoextraction methods can be applied to reach the target of fallow-lands reuse and earn more incomes for farmers. In many studies, Indian mustards (Brassica juncea) were planted in the metal-contaminated soils to study their suitability in phytoextraction. In this pot study, B. junceaplants were planted in artificially Pb-contaminated soils in different concentration of Pb (0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 mg/kg) and find the effect on chlorophyll content and dry biomass of plant. In the present study we find the significant inhibition between the shoots of the control plants and the plants treated with 15 and 20 mg/kg Pb for the dry biomass, G.G.I., and the day 30 chlorophyll evaluation parameters. Keywords: Phytoremediation, Brassica juncea, Lead, Chlorophyll evaluation, G.G.I.
