EFFECTS OF FLY ASH ON PROTEIN, CARBOHYDRATE AND STARCH IN WHEAT

M.R. Yavarzadeh and H. Shamsadini

Abstract

Fly ash (FA) is abundantly available as the by product of thermal power plants, which leads to major environmental problems. For effective and safe management of fly ash, it was used as soil amendment along with recommended doses of N,P,K and vermicompost (VC) for the cultivation of wheat. Its impact on yield parameters was recorded during the rabi, season (2006-2007). The experimental design was RBD with nine treatments, each replicated three times. Treatment T8 (20t/ha FA+5t/ha VC) was better than other treatments for protein, carbohydrate and starch. The grain yield was higher by 32% over control and other treatments. The over all results indicate the suitability of fly ash for cultivation of wheat when used along with recommended dose of NPK and vermicompost.
