Abstract: The present world is greatly inclined towards alternating energy, but yet the use of coal as a primary energy source cannot be avoided. Disposal of huge amount of fly ash from the thermal power plants cannot be bypassed, since we cannot circumvent the second law of thermodynamics. The management of fly ash is a matter of great concern, in the present century. It has great potentiality in agriculture due to its efficacy in modification of soil health and crop performance. The present paper aims to highlight the optimum use of the metal phosphorus, present in the fly ash generated from Mejia Thermal Power Station (M.T.P.S), in boosting the agricultural production. The paper also identified strains of Phosphorus Solubilizing Bacteria (PSBís) that are capable of converting the insoluble form of phosphorus present in rock soil into a more accessible soluble form.
