Experiments were conducted in Bilaspur city to study the effects of irrigating wheat (Tritium aestivum, L.) with sewage water (Treatment) and with tube (control) alone on wheat growth and grain yield. Wheat irrigated with sewage water produced taller plants, more long roots, more leaves and more tillers than did wheat grown with only tube well water. The data reveals that aboveground biomass, below ground biomass, total biomass and root/ shoot ratio was greater at the sewage irrigated sites than that at the tube well irrigated site. The data also reveals that numbers of ear head per plant, number of grains per ear head, weight of seeds, length and diameter of seeds, the grain yield and straw yield per hectare also more at the site with sewage irrigation than at the site with tube well water irrigation.


Key words- Tritium aestivum  L., Bilaspur city, sewage water, irrigation.
