Abstract:
A field experiment was carried out to investigate the “Effect of Integrated Nutrient Management on Growth, Yield and Quality of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench) cv. Kashi Pragati”. during August to October 2014 at Vegetable Research Field, Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj (U.P.). Different levels and combination of bio-fertilizers and inorganic manures was applied to assess the vegetative growth, yield and Quality characteristics of Okra. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design (FRBD) with sixteen treatments and three replications. The maximum plant height (167.83 cm) and maximum number of leafs (32.23) also were observed in the treatment T16 (Azotobactor+PSB+NPK@120:60:60). Average fruit length was found in maximum treatment T11 (PSB+NPK+@100:50:50) 13.06 cm than other treatment. Regarding the different parameters of growth, yield and quality significantly higher [No. of nodes (27.00), Diameter of stem (1.94 cm), Days taken to first flower appearance (38.73), Days taken to 50% flowering (55.03), diameter of fresh fruit (1.39 cm), average fruit weight (12.00 g), number of fruit per plant (22.17), fruit yield per plant (266.05 g), Total yield of fruits (167.52 q/h), Total seed yield per plant (23.10 g), Ascorbic acid (19.03 mg/100g), TSS (14.830 Brix), Incidence of Y.V.M.V. (10.95%) and economically better than all treatment] were reported in the treatment T12 (Azotobactor+PSB+NPK@100:50:50).
