Abstract
Industrial activity has been the biggest contributor to the soil pollution in the last century, especially since the amount of mining and manufacturing has increased. Industrial effluents would have adverse impact on agriculture and would cause environmental degradation. Taking the above facts into consideration, a research was undertaken in Saptagir Camphor industry to explain the influence of industrial effluents on the microbial diversity and soil microbial enzymes. In this study the influence of industrial effluents on soil protease enzyme in both polluted and non-polluted soil samples of Saptagir Camphor industry was investigated. Discharge of effluents from camphor industry altered the physico-chemical properties of soil. Protease enzyme activity was enhanced in polluted soil than in non-polluted soil and it was maximised in soil amended with suitable substrates than in non amended soil. By increasing the effluents concentration, the enzyme activity was stimulated at 50% treated effluent concentrations in non-polluted soil samples and the activity subsided on further increasing the concentration.
