Effect of sewage water on growth, metabolism and yield of bean



Effect of sewage water on growth, metabolism and yield of bean



Journal of Biological Sciences 7(1): 34-40



Seed germination and early growth of bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) seedlings were stimulated by irrigation with sewage water (from Helwan, Egypt). The stimulation of growth was accompanied by induction in synthesis of pigments, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, nitrogenous compounds, except amino acids-N decreased. The activity of amylase, invertase and protease enzymes increased may be due to the presence of some mineral ions which act as activators for enzymes.
