The utilization of agricultural waste produced by different industrial processes has attracted the researchers attention. In this paper the influence of sugarcane bagasse ash (SCBA) as an additive in enhancing the properties of the portland cement was investigated. Thus, the ordinary Portland cement (OPC) was partially modified by adding fine sugarcane bagasse ash. The bagasse ash was sieved through No. 600 sieve, then the concrete and mortar mixtures samples were modified by adding 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20% of BA respectively. The physical characteristics and chemical composition of the bagasse ash and cement mixtures analyzed and tested in Nile Cement Company). The obtained samples were examined and compared with the ordinary cement. The result revealed that addition of bagasse ash to cement up to 15% has improved the compressive strength of mortar. While the addition of 20% bagasse ash to cement results in decreasing the soundness of the cement and improving its fineness.
