Abstract

Okra is an important vegetable crop, also known as lady finger or bhendi and belongs to family Malvaceae. It has its origin in South Africa. Okra vegetable production becomes an income generating enterprise for farmers. Use of local varieties, conventional method of cultivation, inadequate fertilizer management, etc. result in low yield in okra. However, use of improved varieties and hybrids along with integrated nutrient management gives more yields. Application of organic manure, biofertilizers, foliar spray of water soluble fertilizers (NPK) and micronutrients along with recommended dose of fertilizers exhibited an increase in okra yield. Integrated crop management increases okra green pod yield. This article describes the cultivation technology of okra crop.
