Effect of Zinc Electroplating Industry Effluent Residue on Growth and Certain Biochemical Characteristics of Cluster Bean (Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba) L. Taub

P. Sivakumar [4] | M. R. Rajan


Abstract: The present study deals with the effect of Zinc electroplating industry effluent residue on growth and certain biochemical characteristics of cluster bean the physico chemical characteristics such as pH, Electrical conductivity, Total dissolved solids Total suspended solids, Chloride, Sulphate, Dissolved oxygen, BOD, COD, Sodium, Zinc, were estimated. Growth parameters shoot and root length, and fresh & dry weight and Biochemical characteristics chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, Total chlorophyll, Carotinoides were measured after 60 days. Germination percentage of Cluster bean was higher in treatment 1 (100) and lower in (84) in treatment 6 with 2500 mg of Zinc electroplating industry effluent residue. Shoot and root length and fresh and dry weight of cluster bean was higher in treatment 1 and lower in treatment 6. Like growth parameters biochemical characteristics are higher in treatment 1 and lower in treatment 6.
