Abstract: Decrease in length of shoot, root and shoot/root ratio of plant was observed in all the effluent concentrations. Number of nodules, number of branches and number of compound leaves per plant were found to be very high at 20 % effluent concentration. Increase in fresh weight, dry weight and R.G.R of plants were observed at 20 % effluent concentration. Number of seeds per plant and yield also increased at 20 % effluent concentration to maximum. Increase in protein nitrogen and protein content were observed at 20 %--60 % effluent concentrations.But it was maximum at 20 % effluent concentration.
