A field experiment was conducted at the Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP), Dindigul, Tamil Nadu during kharif season to study the irrigation management through wastewater recycling on growth parameters of cotton. Field experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with four replications. The results shown that the mixing proportion of 25% treated tannery effluent (TTE) + 75% domestic wastewater (DWW) recorded higher plant height, root length, dry matter production, leaf area index, leaf area ratio, absolute growth rate, crop growth rate and relative growth rate when compared to other mixing proportions. But all the growth indices were lesser with 100% TTE application. With regard to amendments, application of gypsum recorded enhanced response than VAM and control. Among the mixing proportion of irrigation source and amendments, application of 25% TTE + 75% DWW with gypsum registered higher growth indices in cotton compared to normal water irrigation with gypsum.
