ABSTRACT

This study was conducted to investigate the effects of various organic manure and inorganic fertilizer on growth, development, and phytochemical content of okra {Abelmoschus esculentus) under field condition. Completely randomized design (CRD) was employed in the design of the experiment comprising of five (5) treatments replicated three times to give a total of 15 bucket stand. Each bucket had a total of 10 okra stands with the treatments applied two (2) weeks after germination. The control had zero application. All buckets were watered uniformly as the need arises. The effect of the four fertilizer types on germination rate, plant height, leaf area, stem circumference, number of leaves and phytochemical content were evaluated. The result showed that NPK fertilizer had the highest number ofgerminated seeds with high germination rate. Poultry manure performed better than other organic manure in germination rate. Leaf area was affected by poultry manure application than the NPK fertilizer. Okra plant treated with poultry droppings and cow dung had the highest number of leaves when compared with other treatments. Poultry droppings and Goat dung had overall high plant height than the other organic manure and inorganic fertilizer. Stem circumference had a positive effect on goat dung and poultry droppings application. There was no significant difference in the phytochemical content ofthe leaf, stem and root of'okra plant on organic manure application but the NPK fertilizer was high in phytochemical content when compared with the control plant. The study clearly indicated the effectiveness of poultry dung as promising organic manure performed better in the growth of okra and had significantly higher leafnumber, plant height and leaf area than other treatments.
