The life span of seed initially starts with the water absorption; results with the emergence of roots to germinate (visualized in the germination percentage data’s).  The plant primary adapts and establishes him in stress. Therefore, initial life pattern in germination percentage played a significant role to study the tolerance of Ricinus communis in various sites of municipal solid waste. Thus, germination percentages in the life of a Ricinus communis play a significant role in toxic conditions. The physiology of germinating seeds gets disturbed in IW (industrial waste) toxic site. The chemical and physical structure of disturb in cow buffalo waste and industrial waste site.  The inadequate water availability, absorption, slow metabolism resulted with a poor and delayed germination percentage, seedling growth. Toxic metallic ions absorbed by root system either through in water / inorganic complex facilitate in the soil system. In the experimental findings of germination emergence time and seedling, behavior showed a significant toxic pattern. In the observed data, which clearly depict the pattern of toxicity in two categories? One in moderate toxicity limits of MSW soils (in MMSW –T.P.N.W. experimental sites) other in high toxic sites (IW site). The pattern of germination was in enhanced way of physiological characters in MMSW, JRN, HRRL comparison to control soil data.
