Influence by physical properties of coal combustion residues (CCRs) on dry root productivity of Withania somnifera grown in black cotton soil

Author(s): Bhisham Yadav*, Amarjeet Bajaj, Mohini Saxena, Gaurav Paliwal
Abstract: In India, presently ~40% Coal Combustion Residues (CCRs) generated by burning of pulverized coal at Thermal Power Station is being used for cement, bricks, land reclamation etc. Now a day it has also been considered for agriculture applications. This study, an attempt was made to use of CCRs as soil modifier and micro fertilizer for cultivation of Withania somnifera under two cropping. Results revealed that production of dry root yields of Withania somnifera was found higher in T5 treatment (35.545g and 39.002g per plant) as compared to control treatment (T1). It is showed significant (p
