Effect of Tannery Industrial Effluents on Crop Growth and VAM Colonization in Vigna radiata (L) Wilczek and Zea mays L.

Arshad Javaid, Samina Ashraf and Rukhsana Bajwa    

Abstract: Shoot growth and pod yield was decreased while root growth was stimulated when Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek was grown in Tannery Effluent Contaminated Soil (TECS). Nodulation in V. radiata was also adversely affected in TECS. In maize (Zea mays L.) root length was increased significantly while shoot length and root/shoot biomass were non significantly affected in TECS. VA mycorrhizal colonization was suppressed in TECS in both the test species. Arbuscular infection was severely arrested in TECS.
