The exposure of the forage grasses to the heavy metals resulted in lower biomass production, but this plants can contribute to the process of phytoremediation of contaminated soils as they have higher biomass production than other plant species considered heavy metal hyperaccumulators (e.g., Noccaea caerulescens and Arenaria orbiculata), even with the reported productivity losses; in this regard, Panicum maximum, Avena sativa, and Lolium perenne stood out for being more tolerant to heavy metals than the other evaluated species.
