Abstract :
This investigation was aimed to assess the heavy metals accumulation in soil and agricultural crops
viz.,
Indian mustard (
Brassica juncea
L.), wheat (
Triticum aestivum
L.) and barley (
Hordeum vulgare
L.) irrigated with
glass industry effluent. The glass industry effluent was considerably loaded with various plant nutrients and heavy
metals. The effluent irrigation significantly (P<0.05/P<0.01) increased Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Pb, Zn, total bacteria,
total fungi, actinomycetes and yeast of the soil used for the cultivation of
B. juncea
,
T. aestivum
and
H. vulgare
.
The enrichment of different heavy metals were recorded in the order of Cr>Pb>Cd>Mn>Zn>Cu>Fe for B. juncea ,
Zn>Cd>Cu>Cr>Pb>Fe>Mn for T. aestivum and Zn>Cu>Cd>Fe>Mn>Pb>Cr for H. vulgare irrigated with glass industry
effluent. The translocation of different metals in different parts i.e. root, stem, leaves and fruits were observed in the nm,order of leaves > stem > root > fruit for Cu, Fe, Mn, Pb and Zn; stem > leaves > root > fruit for Cd, root > stem > leaves > fruit for Cr in B. juncea ,
T. aestivum and H. vulgare irrigated with glass industry effluent. Therefore, glass industry effluent irrigation added heavy metals in the soil and B. juncea,T. aestivum
and
H. vulgare
.
