Paper and pulp industrial effluents as such (raw) causing pollution in discharging water bodies. Three different stages of waste effluent collected from paper and pulp industries were raw effluent (PAR), primary treated (PAP), and Secondary treated or outlet effluent (PAO). Collected effluent’s various physiochemical parameters were analysed, these effluents treated by irrigating soybean crop and observation made on its root length, shoot length; number of lateral roots, mean value of leaf area, total chlorophyll content and number of leafs. The results showed paper pulp untreated effluent shown significantly negative effects on soybean crop due to overload of chemical content in the effluent. Subsequently treated effluent reduced the negative effect and final effluent showed positive effects on soybean crop.
