Effects of pollution of growth of mustard plant

Author(s):

Nidhi Kumari

Abstract:
The Study aimed to appraise the effect of different air pollutants viz SO<sub>2</sub>, NO<sub>2</sub>, SPM on growth of mustard plants growing at polluted sites near to Oil Refinery &amp; at reference site (far from polluted site). Air pollution has become a serious environmental stress to mustard plants due to increasing industrialization. Pollutant impair photosynthetic activity, suppress growth parameters, foliage injury &amp; finally growth reduction of plants measured as height of plants, Leaf area, dry shoot &amp; root weight. Comparative study of the above growth parameter were investigated at polluted &amp; reference site near Barauni Oil Refinery. The polluted site atmosphere contains high amount of SO2, NO2 &amp; SPM in comparison to reference site which finally crossed the threshold resistance of mustard plant exerting injurious effect on plant.
