Abstract: The effect was conducted in the nursery of Department of Forestry, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C. G.) during 2011-12. The experiments was carried out to determine the inhibitory effect of different concentrations viz; 0 (control), 100, 200, 500, 700, 1000 and 2000 ppm of Cobalt, Chromium, Lead, and Nickel chloride on seed germination, survivorship, growth performance, biomass accumulation and eco-physiological growth behavior of nursery crop of Siris. Application of metallic pollutant in soil reduced seed germination progressively with increasing the concentrations. However cent per cent survivorship was observed in all the cases. The growth performance viz; shoot length with collar diameter, leaves number and leaf area, root length per plant along with biomass accumulation in different parts revealed that various concentrations of Cobalt, Chromium, Lead, and Nickel chloride showed statistically significant influences, with maximum values in control conditions followed by 100 ppm and minimum at 2000 ppm concentrations. Inhibition by pollutants was more in Albizia procera and less in Albizia lebbeck. Similarly Lead chloride inhibited performance of Siris more than Nickel, Chromium and Cobalt chloride respectively.
