Impact of paper mill effluent on Solanum tuberosum growth and analysis of organic components
Author(s): Mohan Singh Mandloi
Abstract: In the present study an attempt has been made to access the impact of Amalai Paper Mill effluent on Solanum tuberosum growth and analysis of organic components. The presence of many ions in the effluent, retards the water absorption and other metabolic activities this factor plant water stress occurres whenever the loss of water in transpiration exceeds the rate of absorption. The plant water stress reduces photosynthesis along with the reduction of the leaf area. A significant decrease in total chlorophyll as effluent concentration higher than 20%. Reduction in chlorophyll content may also be due to the osmotic effect of high effluent concentration which reduce the uptake of mg, K and other mineral ions, thereby inhibition the synthesis of pigment and effective photosynthetic activities.
