A field experiment was carried out at Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station (AHRS), Bhavikere, Tarikere taluk, Chikmagalur district, Karnataka state during summer season 2019. This experiment was carried out to study the effect of different levels of fly ash on paddy productivity. The experiment was laid out with ten treatment combinations with four levels of fly ash (10, 20, 30 and 40 t ha-1) with and without PGPR and these were tried in an RCBD design with three replications. The study revealed that, the plant height (109. 80 cm), number of tillers per hill (22.08), number of panicles per hill (21.08) and the number of grains per panicle (97.15) were recorded maximum in T9 (T1 + Fly ash @ 40 t ha-1 + PGPR) which was followed by T7 (T1 + Fly ash @ 40 t ha-1+ PGPR) over control where fly ash was not applied. Significantly higher grain (6054 kg ha-1) and straw (7340 kg ha-1) yield were obtained due to the combined application i.e., T1 + Fly ash @ 40 t ha-1 with PGPR (T9) compared to only RDF application.
