The potential of three floating aquatic macrophytes to improve the water quality of anaerobically digested flushed dairy manure wastewater (ADFDMW) was evaluated. In undiluted ADFDMW (total chemical oxygen demand 2010 mg/l), growth of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) was inhibited and both pennywort ( Hydrocotyle umbellata) and water lettuce ( Pistia stratiotes) failed to grow. In a 1:1 dilution of ADFDMW, all three plants grew successfully. However, growth of pennywort and water lettuce… CONTINUE READING
