The impact of irrigation of distillery spent on the nutrients uptake in pulses in untreated and treated soil were studied. The 50% and 33% concentrations of spent wash were analyzed for their additive plant nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and other physical and chemical parameters. The pulse seeds (Namadhari and Mayhco) were sown in the prepared land and irrigated with raw water (RW), 50% and 33% spent wash, respectively. The impact of spent wash in untreated and treated soils on proximate principles (moisture, protein, fat, fiber, carbohydrate, energy, calcium, phosphorous and iron) vitamin content (carotene and vitamin-C) and mineral and trace elements (magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, manganese, zinc, chromium and nickle) of pulses were also investigated. It was found that the uptake of all the nutrients was surplus in 33% spent wash as compared to 50% spent wash treatment and raw water irrigation (control). Aslo, the nutrients uptake was largely influenced in spent wash treated soils in comparison to raw water irrigation than the untreated soil.
