Abstract

Pot culture experiment was carried out at Horticulture farm, ANGRAU- Hyderabad to assess thenutrients and heavy metals (HM) uptake in golden rod treated with sewage sludge. Sewage sludgeobtained from NMK-STP, Hyderabad analysed for physico-chemical properties and used in thestudy along with Red soil in different fractions. A total of seven potting media were preparedcontaining soil, sewage sludge and different ratios of soil + sewage sludge. Plant and spike sampleswere analysed for nutrients and heavy metals uptake. The physico-chemical and biologicalcharacteristics of sewage sludge presented in the Table 1, indicated that sewage sludge can besafley used as a rich organic matter for realizing Golden Rod yield instide of inorganic fertilizerswith ecofriendlly manners. Highest uptake of major nutrients (NPK), micronutrient (Zn) and heavymetal like Ni were within maximum permissible limits either in spikes or plants of Golden Rodin 100% sewage sludge treatment (T5). Uptake of heavy metals viz., Pb, Ni, Co and Cd in spikeswere within the maximum permissible limits as per WHO standards (WHO, 1996).
