The work represents the effect of fly ash in germination of Arachis hypogaea L. with different treatment with growth hormone and soil. In the present study, pot experiment has conducted by using different combinations of soil, fly ash, Sodium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Indole Acetic Acid and Gibbrellic Acid NPK, IAA and GA for estimation of plant growth parameters viz seed germination, number of leaves, leaf area, root and shoot length in Arachis hypogaea. Under the combination E (Soil 70% + Fly ash 30% + NPK (600:400:200) mg/pot + 1.42×10-5m IAA + 6.42×10-5 m GA) best result for the enhancement of all growth parameters have been recorded. The chlorophyll a, b and total chlorophyll content was also higher under the treatments. The present work can give ideas on germination status of other leguminous plants or herbs. Role of fly with soil in different combination may be more productive in crops.
