Abstract:
Experiments were conducted in kharif season 2019 at the experimental farm of regional seed science research center, chauras campus Srinagar Garhwal, District Pauri Garhwal (Uttrakhand) H.N.B. Garhwal University Srinagar Garhwal Uttarakhand. Experiments laid out in RBD having Eight treatments with three replications. The treatment consisted of (control, Pseudomonas, Azotobactor, Neem cake, Pseudomonas + Azotobactor, Pseudomonas + Neem cake, Azotobactor + Neem cake and Pseudomonas + Azotobactor + Neem cake). The results indicated that seed inoculation of Azotobacter along with neem cake to the okra significantly increased growth, germination percentage and seed vigour of okra i.e. germination percentage, plant height 30 days after sowing, days to 50% flowering, seedling root length, seedling shoot length, seedling length, plant height after 60 days sowing and seedling vigour index. However, treatment T7 (Pseudomonas + Azotobactor + Neem cake) and T5 (Pseudomonas + Neem) was found statistically at par to T6 (Azotobactor + Neem cake) in all the parameters.
