Bio-inherent attributes of water hyacinth procured from contaminated water body-effect of its compost on seed germination and radicle growth.
J Environ Manage. 2020 Mar 01; 257:109990.JE

Abstract

Compost is generally used for soil conditioning, growing plants and remediation of pollution. It is imperative to evaluate compost standard and toxicity test is a salient parameter for determining compost quality. Seed germination test is an essential method to discern the phytotoxicity of compost. Ecotoxicity of water hyacinth compost was inspected for the denouement of the compost quintessence and its concentration on seed germination indices. The aim of this paper was to assess seed emergence rate index, germination velocity coefficient and rate of germination of L. esculentum and B. oleracea at discrete concentrations of water hyacinth compost. The highest germination percentage achieved was 95% (L. esculentum) at 100 g/L and 100% (B. oleracea) at 32 g/L of the compost extract. The probability of inadvertent ceasing of germination was found to be < 0.0001 for either of the test species. Consequently, the water hyacinth compost aid plant growth and is recommended for substantially ameliorating languishing ecological idiosyncrasy.
