RESPONSE OF WHEAT CULTIVAR (PBW-343) TO FLY ASHAMENDED SOILNishant Vashistha and Ashish Tejasvi
The large amount of fly ash produced in the process of power generation through coal based thermalpower stations is a matter of great environmental concern. Proper handling of this huge amount of fly ashis badly needed. As we know that fly ash is a coal residue, so it is entirely organic in nature. It has differentmicro and macro nutrients like soil. The present study was performed to find out the effect of fly ash ondifferent growth and yield parameters of wheat through field experiments. Fly ash (FA), organic manurelike farmyard manure (FYM) and chemical fertilizer (CF) were used alone and also in different combinations.In relation to different parameters it was seen that combined application of fly ash and chemical fertilizerwith farmyard manure helped in improving the estimated various growth characters as compared to flyash alone and control.
