Fly ash has increasingly been used as soil amendment. The mobility of the plant nutrient, phosphorus(P), from fly ash into plant roots is limited due to various inherent locking of P in fly ash. Similarly,the phosphatic fertilizer added to acid soils is fixed and is not easily available to plants. The present study is focused on finding some important aspects of P fractions, P fixing capacity, and P adsorption behavior in acid soil and fly ash- soil mixtures to substantiate the beneficial effect of fly ash addition to acid soil in overcoming the P fixation. Fly ash collected from the fluidized bed combustion power plant of Tata Iron and Steel Company, Jamadoba, Dhanbad, India, and acid soil from Jamdoba village was mixed at different ratios for studying the behavior of P in soil and fly ash soil mixtures.
