Effects of various concentrations of copper were studied on growth performance, dry matter production and photosynthetic pigments of Ludwigia perennis L. The growth of the plant showed significant negative correlation with increase in concentration of copper. Higher concentrations of copper caused maximum reduction of shoot and root dry weight over the control plants. The reduction in dry weight of root was higher than the shoot. The photosynthetic pigments also showed reduction with increasing concentration of copper.
