In the field experiment conducted in the varying plots in Etmadpur area of Agra region to study the physico chemical properties of six sewage samples and its effect on vegetable crop. Accumulation of mineral constituents and heavy metals in soil and vegetable crop like spinach and Okra showed varying results. When the sewage water samples (W1-W6) were tested the results were that all the samples were found in the range of (7-8 pH).CO3 is found maximum in 2 samples 2meL-1 (W5-W6), HCO3 is found maximum in one sample 18meL-1 (W2). Cl recorded maximum in 15 meL-1(W6). None of the samples (W1-W6) were detected suitable for irrigation as all were basic in nature. The class of irrigated water is found to be basic in nature therefore not suitable for irrigation. Certain vegetable crops like reddish, cauliflower, spinach etc were found to give better yield in this particular sewage water.
