Fly-ash powder is prepared in small deep film by burning of coal. Coal is ash (K, N, increasing Zn, Ca, Mg, Fe) yields of
Crops with high concentration of elements. It is also used as the soil, which improves the physical, chemical and biological properties of nutrients.
Under the aerobic agriculture, better crop is produced by the fly-ash in rice than the effect of seed pelting. The use of ash increases the growth of plants and nutrients. Along with this, the yield of carrots, cabbage, beans, potatoes, tomatoes also increases.
(1.) The soil texture improves; (2.) Reduces the bulk density of the soil; (3.) Water retention capacity improves; (4.) Optimize the pH value; (5.) The buffering capacity of the soil increases; (6.) In maintaining soil, membrane and water (due to the dominance of round-shaped particles in fly-ash, reduces crust formation); (7.) Provides micro nutrients such as F, Zn, Cu, Mo, B; (8.) provides macro-nutrients such as K, P, Ca etc.; (9.) Reduces the consumption of clay amylients (fertilizer, lime); (10.) Fly-ash is also used as pesticide purposes; (11.) Dynamics in metal and availability in soil decreases
