Physicochemical characterization of soya waste an effluent of soybean oil industry and three different soils was carried out. The growth of soybean plant was studied in 0, 2, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30% etc. blended soil with soya waste. Growth of plants was monitored regularly after every month up to three months from the date of plantation for all the three soils in rainy, winter and summer seasons of the year 2009-10. From the commercial view point, overall maximum number of fruits was found in rainy season for 10-30% blending, in winter for 5-10% blending and in summer for 10% blending. The results of the present work shows the possibility of use of effluents by blending with soil for better plant growth.
