A study was carried out to observe the effect of distillery effluent on green manure and its effect on growth and physiology of Oryza sativa L. cv. Saka-4. The study revealed that 100 distillery effluent with green manure ( Sesbania aculeata) promoted the growth of plants which lead to the increase in their root – shoot ratio, number of tillers, spike density, bio mass per plant, net primary productivity, grain yield and chlorophyll content in comparison to 50 distillery effluent and control.Thus beneficial effects of distillery effluent with green manure assimilated crops growth. Regular use of agricultural land exhaust the essential nutrients required for the plant growth from the soil therefore, it is a compulsory need to replenish and maintain a good structure of soil by green manuring.
