Abstract: A field experiment was carried out at the Horticulture Research Farm, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, U.P. in 2016 to find out impact of different NPK levels and biofertilizers on growth and seed parameters in okra. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design comprising thirteen treatment combinations and replicated thrice. The treatments comprised of NPK, Azospirillum, PSB and VAM including control. Result raveled that growth parameters viz. plant height (79.60) and number of nodes/plant (20.17) was recorded maximum under T10 whereas, maximum number of leaves/plant (28.17), leaf length (11.92 cm) and leaf breadth (19.27 cm) were noticed with T11, T8 and T10, respectively at 60 DAS. Seed parameters like maximum number of seeds/fruits (52.30) was reported in T12 while, T10 resulted highest 100 seeds weight (5.28 g), Seed yield/plant (51.72 g) and Seed yield/hectare (25.54 q).
