Publication Date : 31/12/2015
ABSTRACT Coleus forskohlii is an herb grows wild in the warm, subtropical, temperate areas in India. Planting material of Coleus forskohlii K-8 variety was procured from a nursery near Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh. The field experiments were carried out from 2006–2008 at Botanical Garden, Osmania University, Hyderabad. The growth and metabolism of Coleus forskohlii was studied in different soils added with different levels of fly ash. It is an attempt to know the impact of fly ash and to test its possible utilization in agricultural practices. The main chemical constituent of Coleus forskohlii is Forskolin. The aim of the present investigation is to measure the differences in chlorophyll and phenolic compounds levels in Coleus forskohlii grown in different fly ash amendments.
