Oxyacetylene welding is quite a novel technique of connecting metals with each other that was developed to address the drawbacks of other welding techniques. The use of chemical compounds known as fluxes in the welding process does this, resulting in improved weld characteristics and increased weld depth. Recently, the use of agro-wastes as alternate fluxes has received keen interest from researchers. This is partly because agro-wastes recycling facilitates cleaner environments and could be cheaper. In this study, a critical review was carried out on some particular types and properties of welding. The review also considers the assessments carried out on welded joints and the use of agro-waste.
