Substantial metals are boss natural contaminations and their heightening poisonousness causes danger for biological and ecological reasons. Nickel as one of the significant hefty metal poisons is of impressive concern since its focus is quickly expanding in soils of various pieces of the world. Nickel is generally utilized in silver processing plants, amalgam, shades electroplating, zinc based projecting and capacity batteries. The aims of this study included the study of anatomy and biochemical characterization of radish plant under stress conditions. The objective of this paper is to summarize the overview of the sources, essentiality, uptake Ni toxicity in plants. To check the effect of Nickel sulphate on Radish, amounts(0, 50, 100, 150mM) on radish seedlings through Foliar medium, whole soil culture experiment was performed in the wire house of old Botanical Garden, University of Agriculture Faisalabad. Statistical analysis was achieved after collection of data by using appropriate computer software such as ANOVA. All morphological changes were observed to collect the data for the biochemical analysis. Nickel Sulphate act as suppressor that bring the reduction in growth as well as weight of fresh root (P≥0.001). Under controlled conditions maximum reduction was observed as compared at 150mM Nickel sulphate that was applied in Foliar medium. Nickel pollution is a serious environmental concern which led to research on phytoremediation.
