An experiment was conducted in 1999-2000 in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, India, to evaluate the effect of sewage waste water on morphophysiology and yield of two leafy vegetables, spinach (Spinacia oleracea) and methi (Trigonella foenum-graecum). Sewage waste water application increased chlorophyll a, b and total chlorophyll contents, photosynthetic rate, photosynthetic water use efficiency, growth and yield. Physicochemical characteristics of sewage waste water met the irrigation quality requirements and were within the permissible limits.
