Abstract:

ferox an aquatic plant requires a rich soil, preferably growing in still water. It prefers tropical and sub-tropical climate. In general, aquatic plants take up large quantities of nutrients and metals from environment, releasing them when they decay. They also differ both in their capacity to take up nutrient elements in root tissues and in the proportion of nutrient transferred to above ground parts. With this view, nutrient elements concentrations in different parts of the E. ferox and their contribution to the soil system were studied. The study showed that E. ferox tended to have highest tissue concentrations of N and P in the leaf parts while the less soluble Fe, Mn and intermediately soluble Zn exhibited greater concentrations in roots than in shoots. Thus, E. ferox can also be proved to be a better option as an alternative crop to include it in cropping system mode under field condition to replenish the exhausted nutrients such as N, P and Zn by the cultivation of other cereal crops.
