Abstract:
Background and Objective: There are many suggestions to get rid of the waste ashes by utilizing it in different fields. The agricultural purposes are one of these fields, it may affect the plants, animals and human. So, this study was conducted to observe the characteristics, compositions and the effects of waste ashes on environment before using it in agricultural field. Materials and Methods: For this purpose, six samples were taken from old accumulated garbage in Mansoura district, Egypt. Moisture, bulk density, total porosity, pH, EC, total organic C, organic matter, contents of total N, P, K, Mg, Ca and Na, nematodes and grass seeds were tested. The amount of heavy metals in the 6 samples were evaluated. Results: Results indicated that all the samples were free from nematodes and grass seeds. Also, the mean values of some nutrients such as; total N, P and K were acceptable. Conclusion: The concentrations of heavy metals are very large compared with the permissible values. Therefore, the waste ashes can't be used in the agricultural purposes.
