  • Reducing the electrical conductivity of bore well water using natural bioadsorbents and augmenting azolla growth by neem bark powder-clay sorbent

    Experiments were conducted to select suitable plant-based bioadsorbents for the reduction of the electrical conductivity (EC) of bore well water (EC 2.20 dS m−1). Twenty-seven bioadsorbents were tested against salt reduction. Amla leaves, amla stem, prosopis leaves, calotropis flower and neem bark were efficient in reducing the EC from 1.89 to 1.77, 1.73, 1.69, 1.68 and 1.63 dS m−1 ...
