The effect of concentration modulation and magnetic field in a couple stress fluid with porous medium and salted from above is studied using linear and non-linear analysis. Venezian approach based on perturbation method is used to obtain the expression for solute Rayleigh number and correction solute Rayleigh number. The expression for correction solute Rayleigh number is obtained as a function of couple stress parameter, Chandrashekar number, Darcy number and Schmidt number. The effect of parameters on symmetric and asymmetric concentration modulation are discussed in the paper. A non-autonomous Ginzburg-Landau equation with time periodic co-efficient is obtained to study the effect of parameters on mass transfer. It is found that onset of convection and mass transfer can be delayed or advanced by varying the parameters of the problem. Asymmetric modulation is found to be more stable than the symmetric modulation.
