To study the effect of Musi sewage water irrigation on Heavy metal contents in along the Musi River bed area in Rangareddy and Nalgonda districts of Telangana State in India.
The soils samples were collected at different locations along the Musi river bed just before sowing of the crops during Kharif 2012 and Rabi during 2012-13. These Soil samples were analysed for different parameters. The analysis of soil samples along the Musi river belt area indicated that all other parametersp HEC, CEC, OC, Available N, PK, DTPA Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Pb, Cd, Ni, Co and Cr in sewage water irrigated soils were more than in the Control soils. Further, it is observed that the values were more in Rabi season when compared to Kharif season. Available N, P2O5, K2O, Fe, Mn, Zn, and Co contents were more than adequate level where as Pb, Cd, Ni and Cr contents were below the permissible limits.
