Cultivation of some top vegetables was made by irrigation with distillery spentwash of different proportions. The spent wash i.e., primary treated spentwash (PTSW) and 33% spent wash were analyzed for their plant nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and other physical and chemical parameters. Experimental soils i.e, untreated (plot-1) and spentwash treated (plot-2) soils were tested for their chemical and physical parameters. The top vegetables seeds (Namadhari and Mayhco) were sowed in the prepared land and irrigated with raw water (RW) and 33% spentwash. Influence of spentwash in untreated and spentwash treated soils on proximate principles (moisture, protein, fat, fiber, carbohydrate, energy, calcium, phosphorous, and iron), Vitamin content (carotene and vitamin-c), minerals and trace elements (magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, manganese, zinc, chromium and nickel) of top vegetables were investigated at their respective maturity. It was found that the nutrients of all top vegetables were high in 33%SW than raw water irrigation. Further, the nutritive values were very high in spentwash treated soil (plot-2) 33% irrigation than untreated (plot-1) and raw water irrigations.
