The increase in demand and consumption of cement, scientists and researchers are searching to develop alternative binding materials that are not only ecofriendly, but equally contribute to manage the waste. The use of industrial byproduct and agricultural waste obtained through industrial procedures has focused on managing the waste and their reduction. Sugarcane bagasse ash (SCBA) being one of the agricultural waste is a fibrous waste product produced by sugar mills. During the process at Sugar mills, the Fluid from sugarcane is extracted and ash is produced by burning bagasse at high temperatures. In this research study, (SCBA) has been replaced partially in ratios of 0%, 5%, 10%, and 15% by weight of total cement in concrete mixture. Fresh and hardened concrete properties were obtained through tests which include workability test, compressive strength and tensile strength. The test result revealed that the compressive and tensile strengths of concrete increased till 5% SCBA replacement in concrete.
