The study, conducted at the Agricultural Research Farm, School of Agriculture, S.G.V.U., Jaipur (Rajasthan) during the Rabi season of 2022-23, examined the impact of organic and inorganic fertilizers on the growth, yield, and quality of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench). Using a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with 13 treatment combinations, including control and various mixes of fertilizers with organic amendments like farmyard manure, vermicompost, poultry manure, neem cake, and biofertilizers, the research found that treatment T5 (75% RDF + 25% N through Vermicompost) had a notable impact on vegetative development, yield, and quality indices, also showing the highest benefit-to-cost ratio of 2.26 compared to the control group's 1.14. The combined application of organic and inorganic fertilizers significantly improved Okra's growth, yield, and quality, with T5 demonstrating the best performance in plant height, fruit yield, and quality traits like ascorbic acid and sugar content, highlighting its potential for sustainable and profitable okra production and the benefits of integrating organic manures with inorganic fertilizers for enhancing crop productivity and soil health.

Keywords: Vermicompost, Poultry manure, Neem cake, Horticulture, Economics.
