Abstract:

Decades of military activity on live-fire training ranges have resulted in the contamination of land and groundwater by recalcitrant high explosives, particularly TNT and RDX. Transgenic grass cultivars that provide resilience, rapid establishmentand good coverage have been developed for use on live-fire training ranges that remediate TNT and RDX contaminated soil.
