Abstract:

Fly ash management would remain a great concern all over the world. Several studies indicated that there is an ample scope for safe utilization of fly ash as a soil ameliorant that may improve physical, chemical and biological properties of the soil and is a source of readily available plant micro and macro nutrient. With this concept, a pot culture experiment was carried out at the Horticulture Research Station, OUAT, Bhubaneswar, under naturally ventilated poly house condition during 2017 and 2018. Different proportion of fly ash and garden soil mixture were used to study their effect on seed germination, seedling growth and survival % of cashew grafts. The results of the study envisaged that the media comprising of 70% garden soil mixture and 30% fly ash increased the seed germination, seedling growth and vigour and graft survival (%) in cashew. The media amended with 30% fly ash and 70% garden soil exhibited maximum gross return, net return with B: C.
