The effect of treated fertilizer (nitrogenous) factory effluent irrigation on different productivity parameters of wheat crop (Triticum aestivum,var. L. cv. HD-2285) were studied in field conditions at Phoolpur industrial area of Allahabad district (U.P.) India. The results revealed that no. of plants/ m2, no. of ears/ m2, length of ear/ m2, plant height (cm), yield (Q/ ha) and protein content were found higher in effluent irrigated crop in comparison to control. The overall finding of the present study indicates that fertilizer industry effluent have a manurial potential for better crop productivity.

Keywords: Crop productivity, effluent, fertilizer factory, irrigation, manurial potential.
