This paper studies the bioremediation of the atrazine contaminated soil through the high-efficient atrazine degradation strain, W16, isolated and preserved by our team, analyzes the changes in enzyme activities in the soil during the process, and reveals the relationship between soil bioremediation and soil enzyme activities. The results showed that, during the 17 days of culture, the W16's atrazine-degrading rate was 93.34%. During the bioremediation process in the soil, atrazine had a significant inhibiting effect on the urease and invertase activities (p<;0.05). Strain W16 applied in the soil reduced the inhibiting effect to the control levels, and decreased adverse effect of the atrazine on the urease and invertase activities in the soil. Thereby, the utilization of urea in the soil was raised and the soluble nutrients were increased.
