Abstract

A field experiment was conducted to determine effect of organic manures and bio-fertilizers on growth and yield parameters of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench) cv. Arka Anamika. The experimental was laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications. The treatments comprised of three organic manures viz. Pressmud, Vermicompost and Poultry manure in combination with three bio-fertilizers, namely Azospirillum, Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza (VAM) and Phosphate Solubilizing Bacteria (PSB). All variable parameters regarding vegetative growth and yield were significantly influenced by different combinations of organic manures and bio-fertilizers. Results indicated that combined application of organic manure and bio-fertilizers i.e. Vermicompost @ 70q/ha + Azospirillum @ 55 kg/ha resulted in the significantly better response in respect to early germination (4.87 days), maximum plant height (54.20 cm), maximum leaves/plant (24.87) and early flowering (45.33 days) in okra. Similarly maximum number of pods/ plant (15.07), weight of pods (15.67 g) and yield (262.13 q/ha) were recorded with the soil application of Vermicompost @ 70q/ha + Azospirillum @ 55 kg/ha. However, maximum pod length was recorded under Poultry Manure 32.8 q/ha + Azospirillum 55 kg/ha.
