Abstract :

Field experiments were conducted to assess the effect of biofertilizers on okra in Kerala during Kharif in a Randomised Block Design with 13 treatments and 3 replications. The variety Arka Anamika was treated with FYM and three different biofertilizers (Azospirillum, Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Frateuria) in different combinations. Performance with respect to yield and yield attributing characters were best in the treatment where combined application of all the three biofertilizers along with double dose of FYM was given (T8). This was closely followed by the treatment where full dose of FYM, ¾ of inorganic fertilizers and biofertilizers (T10) were applied.
