The utility of sewage waste water (SW) and thermal power plant waste water (TPPWW) with its high nutrient content was tested on photosynthetic, growth and yield characteristics of black gram (Vigna mungo). Waste water (SW and TPPSWW) treatment increased chlorophyll content, net photosynthetic rate, photosynthetic water use efficiency, leaf number, leaf area and plant dry mass. The cumulative effect of waste water on physio-morphological characteristics led to enhance pod number, seed number and seed yield.
