|Title:||Pollutant removal potential, growth and nutritional characteristics of short rotation woody crops in grey water vegetation filter system|
Srivasatava, R K
|Abstract:||This study evaluates use of vegetation filter for pollutant load removal from grey water, generated from GBPUAT, Pantnagar, India. Grey water is rich in nutrients and organic load and was used for fertigation of woody crops of <i>Eucalyptus </i>hybrid<i>, Populus deltoides, Salix alba </i>and <i>Melia azedarach</i>. Average reduction of N, P and K was 50, 34 and 15%, respectively. Reduction in BOD and COD were 60% and 46% respectively with residual BOD < 30 mg/l. Dry biomass yield of woody crops under wastewater irrigation in comparison to control (ground water) was: <i>Eucalyptus </i>hybrid<i>, </i>143; <i>P. deltoides, </i>54; <i>S. alba</i>, 274; and <i>M. azedarach</i>, 321%. Nutritive value of <i>M. azedarach </i>leaves as a fodder was found good.|
