Abstract:

Safe disposal of the coal ashes is the major concern now. Looking to its potentiality, coal ash can be utilized in agriculture field crops for applications as an amendment of soil properties and nutrient supply. The properties of Fly ash (FA) and Pond ash (PA) indicated that these are having good water holding capacity and have more of sand and silt particles. The use of FA and Pond ash PA along with or without FYM in sunflower crop enhanced growth and yield parameters. The germination of seeds is also influenced greatly by these ashes. The sunflower plant height varied more significantly due to FA and PA application in black soil, however it is less significant in red soils. Application of ashes at the rate of 30 t/ha along with FYM in both red soil and black soil resulted in significantly higher head diameter and test weight in turn seed yield and oil content.
