In present study, potentials of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) and water chestnut (Trapa bispinnosa) employed for phytoremediation of toxic metal rich brass and electroplating industry effluent, were examined in terms of biogas generation. Inability of the plants to grow in undiluted effluent directed to select 20%, 40% and 60% effluent(More)
Eighty crosses derived from line (10) × tester (8) mating design along with their parents were evaluated to study the combing ability and its relationship to gene action and heterosis for eight yield and related traits in early maturity cauliflower. Analysis of genetic component of variance and variance due to specific combining ability (σ2 sca) revealed(More)
In this study, potentials of oven dried biomass of Eichhornia crassipes, Valisneria spiralis and Pistia stratiotes, were examined in terms of their heavy metal (Cd, Ni, Zn, Cu, Cr and Pb) sorption capacity, from individual-metal and multi-metal aqueous solutions at pH 6.0+/-0.1 (a popular pH of industrial effluent). V. spiralis was the most and E. crassipes(More)
