Impact of paper mill effluent on growth characteristics of Vigna Mungo T-9
The present paper deals to Impact of paper mill effluent (PME) was analyzed on black gram (Vigna mungo T-9.). Selected parameters selected were chlorophyll, protein content, root length, shoot length, leaf area and total biomass of V. mungo T-9. Effects of paper mill effluent were analyzed at different dilutions viz. 5%, 10%, 20%, 40%,30%, 50%, & control. At more than 10% of effluent concentration decline was reported in biomass, protein and chlorophyll (4.9 mg/g highest). However, protein content was reported highest (23.5 mg/g) at 20% of concentration of effluent and showed decline further at higher concentration. Simultaneously soil samples were analyzed which showed, gradual increase in N, PO4, Na, K, Mg, and Ca at increasing concentration of paper mill effluent. Biochemical parameters like chlorophyll declined (2.5 mg/g) and protein declined (9.1 mg/g) clearly above twenty percent of effluent concentration which resulted in decrease in root length, shoot length, leaf area and biomass of Vigna mungo T-9.
