Copper: Concentration and Distribution with Distance and Effects on Plants of Chopra Bari Area, Bikaner (Rajasthan)

Author(s): Suruchi Gupta and Ajay Singh Solanki

Copper is a trace element, which is required in 0.2 ppm range in irrigation water for optimum growth of plants. It plays an important role in plant structure and functions. For analysis of copper in irrigation water (industrial effluent), ten samples were collected and were analyzed on Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). This study revealed that concentration of copper decreases with increasing pH and distance in Chopra bari area, Bikaner. Copper, when present in toxic level, shows leaf cupping, decreased root growth and damaged cell membrane in plants while in deficient condition, young tissue chlorosis, distortion and necrosis conditions occurs in plants.
