Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted at the instructional farm of Krishi Vigyan Kendra Jajpur, Odisha during 2016 to study the “impact of organic and inorganic fertilizers on growth, yield, nutrient uptake and soil fertility in okra” variety-Pusa A4. From the experiment it was observed that application of RDF (75%) + (25%) N through neem oil cake (T7) produced maximum plant height (136.41cm), number of leaves/plant (20.98), leaf area (321.52cm2), minimum days to first flowering (36.1), minimum days to 50% flowering (45.2), minimum days to first harvest (41.2), number of fruits/ plant (15.02) and maximum Yield (10.49 t/ha) followed by T5 where RDF (75%) + (25%) N through vermicompost were applied. RDF was 110:50:80 NPK kg/ha. Highest uptake of nitrogen (68.48 kg/ha), Phosphorus (20.92 kg/ha), Potassium (64.82 kg/ha) were recorded in T7 where RDF (75%) + (25%) N through neem oil cake were applied. Highest post-harvest available nitrogen (338 kg/ha), phosphorus (28.4 kg/ha), potassium (276 kg/ha) were found in T11 where 25% N through FYM + 25% N through vermicompost+25% N through poultry manure+25% N through neem oil cake were applied. Whereas, lowest post-harvest available nitrogen (298 kg/ha), phosphorus (14.4 kg/ha), potassium (227 kg/ha) were found was observed in T7.
