Introduction


Cleanup   of   herbicide   contaminated   soils   has   been   a   dire   environmental concern since the advent of industrial era (Ramdas and Gerald, 2011). The rapid increase in population worldwide has resulted in the need for greater fuel demand and   development   of   industrial   chemicals,   fertilizers,   pesticides   and pharmaceuticals to sustain and improve quality of life (Chakrabarty et al., 2008). Although many of these chemicals are utilized or destroyed, a high percentage is release into the air, water and soil, representing a potential environmental hazard (Anwar  et al.,  2009). Consequently, earth’s natural resources are not only being depleted, but also becoming polluted and unfit for human use. As a result, many of the activities that we used to take for granted are now being carefully examined for potential damage to the environment. The use of herbicide has benefitted modern society  by improving the  quantity and quality of the world’s production while keeping the cost of that food supply reasonable. Unsurprisingly, herbicide use has become an integral part of modern agricultural system. Because of continuous pest problems, their usage possibly cannot be discontinued in the near future. Extensive and   improper  use   of   these   chemicals   had   already   caused   considerable

environmental pollution  and leads  to greater health  risk  to plants, animals and human population which have been reviewed from time to time by several workers (Murugesan et al., 2010).
