Integration of tea waste with bottom ash for growth promotion of cowpea
Composting of organic wastes could convert them into a value-added product. A pot experiment was conducted to evaluate the integrated use of composted and uncomposted tea waste with coal ash (bottom ash) for improving growth of cowpea plants. All treatments promoted physical characteristics and biochemical contents of cowpea plants as compared to control. Composted tea waste in combination with coal ash showed better results as compared to other treatments. Results revealed that utilization of enriched compost with coal ash as mineral fertilizer gave best results.
