Abstract:
Field experiment was conducted at the farm of Shree Hansraj Moyal at village Ramsara, Teh. Abohar, District Fazilka in Punjab state during March - June 2018 to study the effect of varieties, organic manure and inorganic fertilizer on growth and yield of okra. The two varieties of okra Punjab-8 and F<sub>1</sub> hybrid shabiha and poultry manure and NPK were used for experimentation. The effect of two varieties, poultry manure and NPK on plant height (cm), days to first flowering, number of fruits per plant, fruit length (cm) and fruit weight per plant (g) were observed. Results showed that plant height, number of fruits per plant and fruit weight per plant were maximum in variety V<sub>1</sub> (Punjab-8) with the application of poultry manure. While days to first flowering was minimum in V<sub>1</sub> (Punjab-8) with the application of NPK and fruit length was maximum in V<sub>2</sub> (F<sub>1</sub> hybrid shabiha) with the application of NPK. On the basis of experiment, it may be concluded that variety V<sub>1</sub> (Punjab-8) with poultry manure recorded superior performance for growth and yield attributes of okra.
