Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out at the Horticulture Research Farm of the Department of Horticulture, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India during the year 2016-1017. The plant to plant and row to row spacing were maintained at 30x60 cm respectively. The experiment was carried under Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications. A single standard variety (Kasha pragati) released from IIVR Varanasi is sown with the different treatment combinations. The treatment combinations are given as – Treatment 1 (T1) control, T2 Farm yard Manure (FYM), T3 (Vermicompost), T4 Neemcake, T5 (50% RDF+FYM), T6 (50%RDF + Vermicompost) T7 (50% RDF +Neemcake), T8 (75% RDF+FYM), T9 (75%RDF+Vermicompost), T10 (75%RDF+Neemcake), T11 (50%RDF+Azotobacter), T12 (50%RDF+PSB), T13 (50%RDF+VAM), T14 (75%RDF+Azotobacter), T15 (75%RDF+PSB), T16 (5%RDF+VAM). On the basis of overall performance under the present investigation, it may be concluded that the application of 50% RDF + Vermicompost in ‘Kashi Pragati’ increased the growth, yield and nutritional quality of okra. It was, therefore, concluded that the use of organic manure in combination with inorganic fertilizers in the production of vegetables like okra should be encouraged as it is beneficial for the physical growth of okra plant.
