Abstract: The results of laboratory microcosmicexperiment to investigate bio-toxic and opportunities of phytore-cultivationof organic-chlorine contaminated soils of toxic waste landfill in Kalush mining area (Western Ukraine) were presented in this article. Research was conducted at the molecular, organic and organismal levels; laboratory speciesof Sinapisalbawas used as a bio-tester. There was proved an inhibitory effect of soil toxicants on growth processes and seed germination of the bio-tester, activation of physiological and biochemical mechanisms of protection. Most informative biomarkers for bio-tests of organic-chlorine contaminationwere defined. The possibility of adjusting the resistance of plants by enriching the soil with bio-universal fertilizers was proven. Sinapisalbawas recommended to be introduced into bio-monitoring system and phyto-remediation of toxic wastedisposallandfill.
