Quality analysis and effect of reused water on some biological characteristics of Phaseolus vulgaris and Pisum sativum

Batool M.H. AL-Adily, Noor M. Naji, Shaymaa O.H. Al-Mamoori


Seeds of Phaseolus vulgaris L. and Pisum sativum were planted in separated pots, then these pots divided into two groups, each group divided into four subgroups. Four different wastewater were used to irrigate the treatments. The results showed the effects induced by irrigated wastewater on P. vulgaris L. and P. sativum. The degree of water salinity induced increasing SOD, protein content and the area of xylem elements, but reduced chlorophyll-α in P. vulgaris. The CAT, protein and chlorophyll-α were increased in in P. sativum as a result to salinity which also reduces the area of xylem elements.
