Use of Fly-ash (Industrial Residue) for Improving Alkaline Soil Status

Ishwar Prakash Sharma and Anil Kumar Sharma

Background and Objective: Fly-ash, an industrial residue from thermal power plants has been problematic solid waste whose utilization is necessary for nutrient recycling and on the other hand alkali soil is an another problem for agriculture. The objective of study was to overcome alkalinity of soil by using fly-ash by which both above mentioned problems might be resolve. Methodology: Experiment was conducted under control conditions with tomato plants by using different concentrations of fly-ash, total six treatments with four replicates for each were taken and statistically one-way ANOVA was used and data were presented in mean values±SE with significant differences at p<0.05. Results: In this study, all growth parameters of tomato plants have been significantly increased at p<0.05 with increasing fly-ash concentration into alkali soil whereas in alkali soil without fly-ash condition the plants could not survive. Conclusion: As increasing growth in aspect to increasing fly-ash concentrations it might be concluded that, such industrial waste can be utilized and recycled for improving wastelands to enhancing soil potential and reduce environmental pollution.
