The present situation emphasizes the need to enhance eco-friendly agriculture practices for intensive farming. Chemical farming has made an unfavourable impact of the health care of not only soil but also the favourable soil microbial clique and the plants cultivated in these soil. This eventually has led the way to a high demand of botanical and organic produce by the present day health conscious society and repeated attempts are being made by farmers all over the world to make chemical free environment. Botanical and organics play vital role in increasing soil fertility and increase yield. The experimental study was conducted at crop research field during Kharif 2021-2022, in the Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture Technology and Sciences. To find out the suitable pre-sowing seed treatment of okra with different concentration, definite period of pre-sowing seed treatments with control (without treated) were calculated by the experimental study. The field experiment was carried out in Randomized Block Design with 13 treatments including control were used to study under field conditions. the results indicates that field emergence percentage (%), plant height at (30, 60 and at harvest ) (cm), days of 50% flowering, days to maturity, number of branches per plant, number of capsules per plant, number of seeds per capsule, length of capsule (cm), seed yield per plant (g), seed yield per plot (g),seed index (%), biological yield (g), harvest index (%) were significantly recorded highest in vermiwash @5% (12hours) followed by vermiwash (3%), beejamrutham (3%), panchagavya (3%) and neem leaf extract (5%) is used for improving growth, yield and yield attributing traits of okra.
