Abstract: Research work was carried out at Horticultural Instructional Farm of Department of Horticulture, C.P. College of Agriculture, Sardarkrushinagar Dantiwada Agricultural University (SDAU), Sardarkrushinagar, Gujarat to determine the growth, yield and profit of Okra as influenced by different Micronutrients and Biofertilizer. The study was conducted with four level of micronutrients viz., no application of micronutrients, Zn @ 20 kg/ha, B 20 kg/ha and Zn + B @ 20 kg/ha15th each with four levels of biofertilizers viz.; no application of biofertilizers, Azotobactor 20 ml/kg seed, PSB @ 20 ml/kg seed and Azotobactor + PSB @ 20 ml/kg seed each were tested under the Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications. All the marketable yield contributing characters were the highest to the plants found with B @ 20 kg/ha was found superior producing number of pods per plant, yield per plant, yield per plot, yield per hectare, length of pod and thickness of pod. On other hand application of PSB @ 20 ml/kg seed recorded maximum number of pods per plant, yield per plant, yield per plot, yield per hectare, length of pod and thickness of pod. Among micronutrient maximum yield (132 qha-1) was found in B whereas in Biofertilizer maximum yield (135.03 qha-1) recorded with PSB (b2). In the micronutrients highest (4.55) Benefit: Cost Ratio (BCR) was observed in Boron whereas in Biofertilizer highest (4.54) Benefit: Cost Ratio (BCR) was recorded in PSB.
