Salinity of soil is a serious problem all over the world. The high content of salt causes the soil unsuitable for crop production and ultimately makes the soil unproductive in many parts of the world. In this current research, a laboratory test has been conducted to reduce the salinity of the soil by using different kind of bacteria. The unsaturated soil sample has been prepared after soaking in the artificial seawater for 3 days and dried. The unsaturated saline soil put in the acrylic column container and mixed with the different microorganisms for possible bioremediation. The sample was collected and measured the electrical conductivity regularly at different specified depths by using a portable electrical conductivity meter. It was found that the electrical conductivity has been reduced with the help of the bacterial activities. The collective microorganisms (Azizul 1) was the most efficient to reduce the salinity by comparing the individual microorganism.
