Industrial effluents with heavy metals adversely affect the growth and development of crops when it is used for irrigation. So this study was carried out to assess the effect of tannery effluent on seed germination and growth performance of selected varieties (BHQPY545 and Malkesa-2) of Maize using different effluent treatments. The treatments were made by mixing measured amount of tannery effluent in distilled water i.e. 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100%.
