Effect of fly ash extract on growth and development of corn and soybean seedlings

, : Effect of fly ash extract on growth and development of corn and soybean seedlings. Water Air & Soil Pollution 27(1-2): 155-168

Different concentrations of aqueous extract of fly ash were prepared by soaking air dried fly ash and mixing thoroughly with an electric blender. Extracts were then applied to the seeds of corn (Zea mays L.) and soybean (Glycine max L.) after being filtered through a Whatman No. 42 filter paper. Fly ash extract in the lower concentration range of 0.5 to 1.0% (W/V) had no significant effect on germination and seedling growth of each of the two crops. Higher concentrations of fly ash extracts, however, had deleterious effects on the percentage of germination, viability , number of roots, shoot and root length, fresh weight and dry weight of seedlings of both the crops. The elemental concentrations in shoot and root systems of control seedlings of corn and soybean were found to be the same, whereas in the extract treated corn and soybean seedlings, a relatively high elemental concentration was found in roots as compared to shoots.
