Chemical composition of young vegetable plants changed to varying extent when they were grown under stress conditions derived from soil residues of BHC (single stress). Number of alterations was maximum in amaranthus. This plant contained less of carbohydrate. nitrogen and phosphorus but more of iron. When the insecticide degradation in soil was accelerated through microbial enrichment (dual stress), generally a positive influence on chemical composition was noticed. Response of different plants to the stresses differed regardless of their taxonomic position. In chili plant wbile the exact mechanism to deal with BHC is not known it is indicated to be associated with calcium. Except iron deficiency in coriander seeds, otber vegetables harves· ted from soil containing both BHC and enriched micro·organisms capable of degrading tbis chemical were not deficient in any of the nutrients examined.
