Abstract
In a greenhouse trial, sandy loam alluvial soil was amended with fly ash at rates of 2.5%, 5%, 10% and 25% by weight and was sown with corn (Zea mays L. cultivar T-41) and soybean (Glycine max L. cultivar T-49). At fly ash application rates of 2.5-5% (w/w) both crops showed an increase in the height of plants, leaf area, chlorophyll and carotenoid content, and dry weight. Higher rates of fly ash reduced the yield and photosynthetic pigment contents of both crops.
