Impact of coir retting effluent on seed germination and seedling growth of green gram and mustard
Shenkani K, Sam Manohar Das S
This study attempts to analyze the physico-chemical characteristics of the coir retting effluent and to understand its effect onrngermination, relative toxicity and growth rate of greengram and mustard seeds. Seeds were raised in petriplates irrigated with variousrnconcentrations of sugar industry effluent (control, 10, 25, 50, 75 and 100%). At lower dilutions (75%) the seeds showed favourablerneffect on seed germination and seedling growth. The effluent can be used safely only after proper treatment and dilution for irrigationrnpurpose.
