Rashida Perveen, S. Shahid Shaukat and Iftikhar Imam Naqvi    

Abstract: The effect of atrazine on the levels of carbohydrates, amino acids, potassium, phosphate and sodium contents in shoots and roots of bean plant were investigated. Application of atrazine amounting, 10 to 100 ppm resulted in decrease in carbohydrate, potassium, phosphate and sodium contents of roots and shoots of bean plants. However, amino acid content was reduced in shoot as compared to root wherein it got enhanced at 10 to 100 ppm atrazine concentration. A little growth stimulant effect was observed at 5 ppm concentration of atrazine in shoots and roots of bean plants.
