A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of different cultivation practices (Natural farming, organic farming, package of practice and farmers practice) on growth and yield of okra (Halu Bhendi) during 2019-20 at Zonal Agricultural and Horticultural Research Station, Brahmavar. Results of field experiment revealed that significantly higher plant height was recorded in package of practice during all the growth stages. Among the treatments, the maximum number of fruits per plant (24.56) and fruit yield per plant (1.66 kg) were recorded in package of practice. While, the minimum number of fruits per plant (17.12) and fruit yield per plant (0.90 kg) were observed in farmers practice treatment. The maximum yield (14.38 t ha-1) was obtained under package of practice treatment followed by organic farming treatment (11.53 t ha-1). The highest benefit: cost ratio of 2.83 was obtained in natural farming treatment. While, the lowest (1.26) was found in organic farming treatment.
