MHD fluid flow is examined over a vertical porous plate in the presence of radiation and heat generation. The resulting momentum, energy and concentration equations are then made similar by introducing the usual similarity transformations. These similar equations are then solved numerically using Runge-Kutta fourth order method with shooting technique. The effects of various parameters on the dimensionless velocity, temperature and concentration profiles as well as the local values of the skinfriction coefficient, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are displayed graphically and in tabular form.
