Abstract: Investigation on "Effect of some organic manures on yield and quality of okra {Abelmoschus esculentus L.) cv. Phule Kirti" was carried out at Research Cum Instructional Farm, Department of Horticulture, Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth, Rahuri, during the summer and Kharif seasons of 2003. The experiment was consisted of eleven treatments with three replications in randomized block design. Farm yard manure, cotton seed cake and poultry manure were applied in combination at 25, 50 and 75 per cent levels for N source. Vermiphos and Sulphate of potash were used as source of phosphorus and potassium, respectively. The quantity of P205 and K20 from organic manures were considered as bonus application in respective treatment. For kharif season, same layout of summer season was used. The objective of this experiment was to study the effect of various organic manure treatments on plant growth, flowering, yield and quality of okra fruits. The growth parameters such as height of plant and average number of intemodes were better with organic manures. The maximum okra fruit length of plant, minimum number of days for 50 per cent flowering and higher number of fruits, maximum number of internode per plant were observed with organic manure. The maximum yield was produced with organic manure treatment T consisting of Cotton seed cake (25 % N) + Poultry manure (75 % N) + Vermiphos + Sulphate of Potash + Package (Neem cake @ 200 kg/ha + Trichoderma viridae @ 4 g/kg + lAzotobacter @ 200 g/10 kg + Azospirillum @ 200 g/10 kg + PSB @ 200 g/10 kg + NSKE 4 % (spray). As regards to the quality attributes such as Physiological Loss in Weight (PLW %) and sugars, the organically grown fruits showed superior performance. The chemical properties of soil viz., pH, EC and organic carbon content were found better with organic manure treatments. The availability of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium and their uptake were also observed significantly higher with organic manure treatments. Thus, it could be concluded that, application of organic manures helped to improve quality of okra fruits with better growth and yield.
