Abstract: Present investigation was framed to study the effect of combination treatments of different organic manures, biofertilizer and organic mulches on growth and yield of okra (variety Arka Anamika) in total of sixteen treatment combinations. The results showed that combined application of poultry manure (14 t ha-1) and bio-fertilizer as Azotobacter without any mulch recorded the maximum plant height (155.20 cm), number of fruits plant-1 (21.39), fruit length (18.28 cm), average fruit weight (14.01 g), fruit yield plant-1 (292.53 gm), fruit yield plot-1 (7.36 kg) and highest yield of 14.71 t ha-1. It may be concluded that poultry manure and bio fertilizer may be a viable nutrient source for organic okra cultivation.
