The study was concerned about the effect of the sewage water in the agricultural fields as an irrigation perspective. In vitro experiment was done where the seeds of Cicer arientinum and Vigna radiata were treated with the different concentrations of untreated and bacterial consortium treated sewage water. The effect of sewage water on seedling growth was suitable in the lower concentration (25%), whereas the higher concentration (50, 75 and 100%) was inhibitory in untreated. The sewage water after treatment was found to be of improved quality and showed good germination and seedling growth.
