Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted in the premises of Pepsico Pvt. Ltd., near Bengaluru during 2012-13 to study the effect of beverage industry effluent on soil properties, growth and yield of barley with ten treatments replicated thrice using RCBD design. The beverage industry effluent was neutral in reaction, medium in electrical conductivity (1.59 dSm-1), BOD (42.2 mg L-1) and COD (143 mg L-1) but low in plant nutrients content. Among the treatments, growth parameters like plant height (69.7 cm), number of tillers (199.6), number of effective tillers m-2 (253.0), length of ear head (8.3 cm), number of grains head-1 (20.1) and test weight (48.5 g) were significantly higher in the treatment receiving cycle of 1 irrigation with fresh water + 2 irrigations with beverage industry effluent + RDF + gypsum (T10) at 60 DAS. Significantly higher dry matter production in leaf, stem, ear head and TDM were observed in T10. Cycle of 1 irrigation with fresh water + 2 irrigations with beverage industry effluent + RDF + gypsum recorded significantly higher grain (4.70 t ha 1) and straw yield (5.99 t ha 1) of barley compared to other treatments. Significantly lower grain (3.05 t ha 1) and straw yield (4.35 t ha 1) were recorded in treatment with beverage industry effluent + RDF without gypsum.
