Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during the year 2019-2020 at four study sites. The ornamental plant i.e. OP-16 among plants, S1 among sites and OP-16 X S1 among interactions exhibited maximum total chlorophyll content. Relative Water Content (RWC) recorded was highest in OP-18 (91.68) among plants, S3 (81.20) among sites. OP X S interaction had no significant effect on RWC. Ascorbic acid content recorded was maximum in OP-24 (13.91 mg g-1) among plants, S3 (4.80mg g-1) among sites and OP-24 X S3 (14.72mg g-1) among interactions. pH content recorded was higher in OP-23 (6.37) among species, S1 (6.31) among sites and OP X S was non significant on pH.OP-4 had maximum phenol content of 23.44mg 100g-1 among plants, S3 (5.40mg 100g-1). An investigation for APTI revealed that OP-24 (18.82) among plants, S3 (11.38) among study sites and OP-24 X S3 (19.45) among interactions recorded highest APTI. With regard to Anticipated Performance Index (API), in over all, assessment study showed that OP-6, OP-19 and OP-24 are under very good performers against pollution, OP-1,OP-2, OP-3, OP-4, OP-5, OP-7, OP-8, OP-9 and OP-16 were grouped under good performers and were recommended to S2, S3 and S4 polluted sites for green belt development and also for landscaping purpose as they mitigate and minimize air pollution load because they tend to serve as barriers and act as sink for various pollutants.
