Abstract: The application of organic fertilizers has significant effect on the growth and biochemical performance of Abelmoschus esculentus (L. ) Moench. The growth response such as seed germination, seedling vigour index, shoot length, root length and plant fresh and dry weight were significantly increased with plants amended with organic fertilizers. The response was varied with respect to fertilizers. The organic fertilizers amendment greatly affected the all growth characters of Okra compared to control plants. There was a significant difference was observed in the rate of seed germination and the rate germination index in the plants treatment with vermicompost followed by farmyard manure. The soil amended with vermicompost had a significant effect on the shoot as well as root length. Likewise, the biochemical characters such as total chlorophyll, protein, glucose, ascorbic acid content and NR activity were significantly increased in the plants amended with organic fertilizers over the control plants.
