Abstract:
The compost obtained from composting organic fraction of Municipal solid waste using different initial mix ratios (70%, 80% and 90%) was used to evaluate phytotoxicity of gram seeds (Cicer arietinum) and fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum-graecum) using a seed germination method. The results showed that composting generally reduced the phytotoxicity of the mixtures. A germination index was the highest in the mix ratio of 1:9 after 72hrs in the gram seeds (Cicer arietinum) obtained from the compost of municipal solid waste. The germination percentage, germination index and vigour index values were relatively higher in the compost. The vigour index was found to be maximal in the mix ratio of 1:9 after 72hrs in the fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum-graecum) from the municipal solid waste compost. The effects of compost water extracts on seed germination were measured to calculate the germination index (GI).
