Will there be any beneficial effects for the soil from the recent ash cloud?

Does anyone know what effects the recent ash cloud will have on the soil of our green and pleasant land. For example are there any nutrional benefits that may be gained from the recent event.



Quite possibly, but its irrelevant anyway, as far as I know, none of it has fallen here, it was 20,000 feet up.

Well it fell in the north of Scotland where we live. Volcanic ash is high in nutrients and so is generally good for the soil.
