This study aims to evaluate the possible impact of management practices on the activities of important and related enzymes in petroleum-contaminated soil through a four-factor phytoremediation method. The purpose of this experiment is to carry out a four-factor planting experiment according to the planting season in Nigeria in 2013, and choose a soil depth of 20 cm to represent a better community. The results indicate that the decrease in protease activity may be due to autolysis, and there is a time lag between sampling and analysis in different countries/regions, which may limit this study. It is observed that the higher β-glucosidase activity is related to organic matter content and respiratory activity.
