In this research, the effects of Trichoderma harzianum and Glomus mosseae; singly and in combination on C. annum irrigated with mining water was investigated. The quality of mining water used for irrigation of Capsicum annum and the irrigated Capsicum annum samples were collected and analysed for their heavy metal build-up. The results indicate that the mining water used was contaminated with Copper (19.6 mg/l), Arsenic (15.2 mg/l), Lead (6.54 mg/l) and Iron (45.8 mg/l) respectively. It was observed that the two organisms were able to utilize the heavy metal constituents, with G. mosseae alone showing high efficiency of utilization. Dual inoculations were also observed to be better heavy metals utilization than the control. The research concluded that the use of Trichoderma harzianum and Glomus mosseae on polluted soil improves growth and yield of C. annum in contaminated soils.
