Abstract The aim of this work was to compare the effect of 1 % and 5 % humic substances (HS) on the growth of bean, wheat, rape and cress, as well as microbial activity (respiration, enzyme activity) in sandy loam soil spiked with a complex contamination, derived from municipal waste. The results of 23 days pot vegetation experiment demonstrated the stimulating effect of HS on the plant growth and soil microbial activity.
