Effects of pollutants on seed germinability, reproductive capacity and yield of mustard plant
Author(s): Nidhi Kumari
Abstract: Pollutants ejected as a result of rapid industrialization, urbanization transport are real threats to the present environment. The environment surrounding any industries contains impure air that is loaded with pollutants ejecting from industry making tough conditions for the plants to survive. The present investigation was on Barauni Oil refinery which was located in Bihar, polluting the atmosphere in the forms of gaseous like SO2, NO2 & suspended particulate matter liberated as a result of refining of crude petroleum. Effects of these pollutants were studied on mustard plant at sites near to oil refinery considered as polluted site and comparison with reference site i.e far away from reference site. The present investigation concludes that pollutants impair seed germinability reproductive capacity & yield of mustard plant. So adaptive methods should be practiced to control pollution.
