Abstract

DESTRUCTIVE AFFECTS OF CHROMIUM ON SOME ATTRIBUTES OF SORGHUM BICOLOR (L.)

Sweety Sihag* and U. N. Joshi

ABSTRACT

A pot experiment was conducted to determine the effects of varying Cr (VI) levels [0.0–4.0 mg Cr (VI) kg-1 soil in the form of potassium dichromate] on the some quality parameters of sorghum Sorghum bicolor (L.). Quality parameters was measured in terms of protein content, chlorophyll content and IVDMD (In vitro dry matter digestibility) content at different growth stages, i.e. 35 DAS, 70 DAS and 90 DAS (Days after sowing) that were adversely affected with an increase in Cr (VI) levels from 0.0 to 4.0 mg Cr (VI) kg-1 soil. The decline in protein content 4.67 g/kg dry weight at T4 was observed as comp;red to control (T1) (8.96 g/kg dry weight basis) at 35 DAS in leaves, Total chlorophyll content declined from 3.25 mg g-1 fresh weight (T1) to 2.40 mg g-1 fresh weight (T4) at 35 DAS and IVDMD content declined from 43.60 to 33.60 per cent dry weight basis with increment in chromium concentration. It is concluded that Cr (VI) at higher doses (4.0 mg Cr (VI) kg-1 soil) adversly affects the quality parameters of Forage sorghum Sorghum bicolor (L.) however, quality parameters are responsible for nutritive value of sorghum Sorghum bicolor (L.).

Keywords: Chlorophyll content, Chromium toxicity, Sorghum bicolor, Quality parameters.
