An increase in quarrying, open-cast mining and road traffic suggested that dust deposition onto vegetation may be increasing. This review describe the effects of copper dust on crops, grass land, tress, forest and woodland, are identified. Copper dust may affect photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration. Visible injury symptoms may other occur and generally there is decreased productivity due to affect in chlorophyll pigment. In this review present investigation, comparative studies have been done to find the effect of dust pollutant generated from the exhaust of copper open-cast mining area on the chlorophyll content of leaves. This review recommendation for future research is made in order to overcome this deficiency.
