Abstract: In the present experiment the influence of Bio-fertilizer, organic manure and inorganic fertilizers individually and in combination on okra cv. VRO-6 were tested in a randomized block design with 8 treatments and 3 replications during summer-rainy season of 2009-2010. Mycorrhizal application promoted the growth and yield of okra in as all mycorrhizal combinations produced better results than sole organic manure and inorganic fertilizers. Results revealed that the combined application of mycorrhiza + 50% organic manure + 50% inorganic fertilizer or mycorrhiza + 75% organic manure +25% inorganic fertilizer produced the highest fruit yield (13.67 t/ha) and its attributes and other morphological characters under study all the treatments. Sole mycorrhizal application did not produce any better results unless it was combined with organic manure and inorganic fertilizers.
