Abstract:
A study was conducted during Kharif 2020 to asses the “Effect of fly ash, lime and vermicompost application on Physico-chemical properties of soil” in an Inceptisol at KVK, Katghora, Korba, (Chhattisgarh). The treatments were different doses of fly ash with lime, vermicompost and RDF besides absolute control. The treatments were laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. The results showed that the application of fly ash with lime and vermicompost could be a viable option for enhancing the production of crops under acidic soil conditions. The conjoint application of fly ash lime and vermicompost with RDF i.e. 75% RDF + 40 t/ha Fly ash + 2 t/ha Lime + 2 t/ha Vermicompost was found to decreased bulk density of surface soil (0-15 cm) from 1.61 Mg m-3 to 1.50 Mg m-3. It retain higher moisture content in soil after harvest of crop and increases the soil pH, available NPK status significantly with the application of fly ash, lime and vermicompost, while no effect on electrical conductivity, particle density and organic carbon was recorded.
