Sangeeta, Rani Devi, Gita Rani
Use of sugar mill effluents for irrigation practices in agricultural fields with some level of dilution is in practice internationally. This research paper is representing significant water quality parameters with respect to its use in agriculture. Physico-chemical analysis of sugar industry effluents of Cooperative Sugar Mills, Meham, Haryana, India were done which includes: color, odour, pH, electrical conductivity (EC), total dissolved solids (TDS), total suspended solids (TSS), total solids (TS), Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), total alkalinity, carbonate, bicarbonate, sulphate, chloride, total hardness, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, and phosphate. All the effluent parameters were analyzed as per the APHA (2012) standard methods.
