In the present study, an attempt has been made to develop the fertility capacity of fly ash as a soil substitute to enhance wide application of fly ash in agricultural field. In order to study the impact of cow dung in developing fertility of fly ash, a set of experiments were carried out by taking different ratio of fly ash and cow dung. The mixed samples were tested to observe the growth of sunflower plants in it. The study revealed that when the fly ash : cow dung ratio was found to be 5:2, the mixed sample could provide appreciable growth to the plants with the gradual increase in FLY ASH : COW DUNG ratio up to 5:3 there is a healthy growth of the plant after which decrease in the ratio has no adequate effect on plant growth. The date generated were compiled and the result has been summarized in the study.
