Effect of Irrigation with Paper Mill Effluent on the Nutrient Status of Soil

Santosh Kumar Singh

The study was undertaken to investigate the impact of paper mill effluent irrigation on soil nutrient status. The soil was collected at five locations. At each location two near by fields were selected of which one was irrigated with paper mill effluent while other received normal irrigation water. The samples were collected for two depth 0-15 cm and 15-30 cm and were designated as d1 and d2, respectively. The study revealed a significant increase in EC (electrical conductivity), organic carbon, available K, exchangeable cation (Ca2+ and Mg2+), exchangeable anion (Cl¯ and HCO3¯) along with micronutrient cation (Cu2+) for both d1 and d2 depths under paper mill effluent water irrigation. Although increase in value for available N, P and S were recorded for both d1 and d2 depths but they were found to be statistically at par with that of control.
