Vermitechnology may be used for amending fly ash for agricultural applications. Applying vermitechnique it is possible to convert fly ash into manure or base soil by properly supplementing it with organic component and making use of the major and micro plant nutrients present in fly ash.

The earthworms can convert soluble lead present in the soil into plant unavailable form within 60 days.
