Abstract:

The present study was carried out to study the effect of different fertilizer levels on growth and yield of okra crop at Research Farm of Department of Irrigation and Drainage Engineering, College of Agriculture Engineering and Technology, Dr. PDKV, Akola during 03 Dec 2016 to 04 Mar 2017. The experimental was laid in randomized block design (RBD) with seven treatments and three replications (I1T1-60% ETc with Polyethylene mulch and 60% RDF, I1T2-60% ETc with Polyethylene mulch and 80% RDF, I1T3-60% ETc with Polyethylene mulch and 100% RDF, I2T1-80% ETc with Polyethylene mulch and 60% RDF, I2T2-80% ETc with Polyethylene mulch and 80% RDF, I2T3-80% ETc with Polyethylene mulch and 100% RDF and control-100% ETc without Polyethylene mulch and 100% RDF).Seeds of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.) of the variety Phule Utkarsha were sown with seed rate of 8 kgha-1. The recommended fertilizer dose of 100:50:50 N: P: K Kg/ha and as per treatments was given through fertigation in five equal splits. All the growth and yield parameters were found maximum under treatment I2T3while the quality parameter was found maximum for treatment I2T2. The treatment I2T3 (80%ETc with 100% RDF and plastic mulch) has given maximum yield of 116.26q/ha. The lowest yield was observed under control treatment (10.15 q/ha). Okra crop should be grown under polyethylene mulch and drip irrigation at 80% crop evapotranspiration and 100% RDF for highest production.
