Abstract

The effectiveness of liquid bio-fertilizer on the growth, fruit production and nutrient uptake of okra under field condition. The aim of the experiment was to determine optimum fertilizer rate for yield and quality parameters. The result of okra obtained shows that liquid bio-fertilizer affect plant height, number of leaves and number of lateral branches Treatment 3 (1.5ml of liquid bio-fertilizer to 18ml of water) perform well to the application of liquid bio-fertilizer to plant high, number of leaves and total number of pods followed by Treatment 2(1ml of liquid biofertilizer to 18ml of water) which has the highest performance in number of lateral branches from week 1 to week 5, followed by Treatment 4 which perform best with the value of (9.2667) compared to control. Treatment 1has the highest Average pods weight with the value (6.5333), while Treatment 3 performs best in pods length (9.40000), in addition liquid biofertilizer brought about improvement in the minerals composition of okra fruit. Treatment 4 performs best in Iron (0.027) Calcium (6.8) Magnesium (5.6) and Potassium (27) respectively, and also in proximate analysis,Treatment 1 has the highest Ash and Fat content (7.37 and 1.24) while Treatment 4 has the best performance in Protein content (10.67). Treatment 2 performs best in Crude fiber content with the value of (24.96) compared to treatment 6 which is the control. Treatment 3 (1.5ml of liquid biofertilizer to 18ml of water) for optimum yield and fruit quality of okra.
