A pot experiment was conducted to determine the effects of varying Cr (VI) levels [0.0–4.0 mg Cr (VI) kg-1 soil in the form of potassium dichromate] on the structural and non structural carbohydrate value of sorghum. The present investigation showed that the structural  carbohydrate viz NDF, ADF, Cellulose, Hemicellulose, lignin and Silica content in leaves and stem are increased and non structural carbohydrate includes Total soluble sugar, Reducing and Non reducing sugar in leaves, stem and root decreased in plant at different growth stages, i.e. 35 DAS, 70 DAS and 90 DAS (Days after sowing) that were adversely affected with an increase in Cr (VI) levels from 0.0 to 4.0 mg Cr (VI) kg-1 soil.
