Phytoremediation is a method of choice for remediates any pollutant from nature.This nascent technology has already undergone successful pilot study and it is time tofind more popular and useful plants and bring them to the field to clear the nature.Alfalfa and tomato as a part of traditional culture of many countries could be propercandidates for this purpose. EtBr as a DNA staining dye is one of common tools ofmolecular biologist. But, the hazardous effects of them (in use or waste) make a neweffort to remove safely them after usage. This study examine the alfalfa and tomato`srole in absorbance of EtBr and the subsequence of such accumulation. Seeds of alfalfaand tomato were transplanted and after 23 days in which they grown in appropriatesize, we started to inoculate them with several concentration of EtBr. After 10th and17th day the samples were collected and the analysis significantly demonstrated thediverse effect of EtBr on short and long term on them. In summary, EtBr divided theplants growth to two main phases, before day 10, increasing growth and after day10, decreasing growth. Increasing roots number and diameter in contrast to decreasingthe length of shoots were the special efforts of our research.
