Reviewer 2 Report

The paper entitled ”Phytoremediation of cadmium, lead and nickel polluted soils by industrial Hemp” aimed to evaluate the adaptability of two monoecious industrial hemp varieties, Futura 75 and KC Dora, under three different levels of cadmium, lead, and nickel soil contamination in order to assess their phytoremediation potential and the effects of the pollutants on hemp’s yield in southern Mediterranean area. The study is well organized and the obtained results are of interest for the researchers in the field. There are some aspects that authors should be addressed:

1. In the Abstract authors should summarise some aspects regarding methodology and the results since this part of article sometimes is presented as stand alone section.

2. For the Atomic absorption spectrometry which method was used, flame or furnace? This should be mentioned in the text.

3. In the Results section if is possible to plot SD or SEM on charts columns to be more accurate.

4. Use the same pattern for the references
