Abstract: Effect of different doses of chromium on growth and some physiological parameters were investigated. Increasing doses of chromium caused reduction in growth and concentration of chlorophyll, sugar and protein in paddy leaves. At increasing doses of chromium, catalase and peroxidase activity was found to be reduced.
Key words: Catalase, Chlorophyll, Paddy (Oryza sativa L.) Peroxidase, Protein, Sugar.
