Abstract: The present investigation entitled “influenced by integrated effect of inorganic and organic fertilizers with fly ash on yield attributing characters of rice crop” was carried out during kharif season of 2014-15 at Ajirma village, Surajpur district (Chhattisgarh). The treatments comprised of control, 100% GRD (100:60:40), 75% GRD + 20 t fly ash ha-1, 75% GRD + 40 t fly ash ha-1, 75% GRD + 60 t fly ash ha-1, 75% GRD + 20 t fly ash ha-1 + 5 t FYM ha-1, 75% GRD + 40 t fly ash ha-1 + 5 t FYM ha-1 and 75% GRD + 60 t fly ash ha-1 + 5 t FYM ha-1 were laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. The results showed that fly ash and FYM can be a source of plant nutrients and it could be used for enhancing the production of crops. Fly ash integrated with recommended fertilizers and FYM imprinted significant positive effect on yield attributing characters and yield of crop with improve physiochemical properties of soil. . The maximum effective tillers hill-1 (8.96) and grain per panicle (72.19) was recorded in T8 (75% GRD + 60 t fly ash ha-1 + 5 t FYM ha-1) while, the minimum effective tillers hill-1 (6.24) and grain per panicle (40.19) was recorded under T1 (control). Application of different doses of fly ash combined with and without organic fertilizer tended significantly not increase pH, EC, particle density and test weight.
