A study was carried to observe the effect of green manure decomposed by distillery effluent on Cicer arietinum 256. The study revealed that 50% concentration of treated distillery effluent with green leaf manure (Sesbania aculeata) has promotory effect than 100% concentration and only green leaf manure over control. The germination percent, seedling growth, germination relative index, phytomass and vigour index were found higher in 50% concentration of distillery effluent with green leaf manure. As green manure envisages a comprehensive management approach to improve the health and underlying productivity of the soil. Therefore, it is recommended that distillery effluent has appreciable amount of plant nutrients which can be assimilated into soil for growth after proper dilution and treatment.

Keywords: Distillery effluent, green manure, sesbania aculeata, comprehensive management, Cicer arietinum L.
