Abstract

To assess the suitability classes of wastewater of three tobacco industries for irrigation purposes and their effects on germination and seedlings growth of three vegetables a lab experiment was conducted. The investigation was undertaken in the Agricultural Chemistry Laboratory, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University, Dinajpur, Bangladesh. Several variables such as pH, EC, TDS, Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+, K+, Cu2+, Mn2+, Fe3+, PO43-, HC03, SO42-, Cl, electrical conductivity, sodium adsorption ratio, kelly’s ratio, permeability index and hardness were computed. The wastewaters were found acidic and could be suitable for agricultural and aquatic uses. In respect of Ca2+, Fe3+, Mn2+, Cu2+, Cl and PO42- and other cations and anions content all the water samples under investigation was acceptable for continuous irrigation purposes and would not affect the soils. Based on sodium adsorption ratio, hardness, permeability index and kelly’s ratio, all water samples were suitable for irrigation purposes. In respect of K+ content the water samples were suitable as irrigation water for potassium demanding crops. Water samples under investigation were not suitable for irrigation in respect of sulphate ion. But if the concentration of sulphate ion can be reduced by any way then it will be suitable for sulfur demanding crop. In respect of magnesium all samples were not safely be used for irrigation. Twenty-five ml of collected wastewater showed higher performance in relation to germination rate, shoot length and root length in cucumber, radish and yard long bean.
