Abstract: The field study was carried out on a lateritic soils of Konkan for year (2015-2016) to study the effect of boron and Konkan Annapurna Briquettes on yield, nitrogen use efficiency and nutrient uptake by okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.)). It was observed that the split application of 75% RDN through tar coated Konkan Annapurna Briquettes (KAB) fortified with boron @ 4 kg ha-1 which was applied in two times i.e. 1/2 quantity of briquettes at 2-3 leaf emergence stage of okra plant and 1/2 quantity of briquettes at 30 DAS @ 2 briquettes per plant which found promising to enhance the okra green pod yield, nitrogen use efficiency, higher uptake in respect to N, P, K and B content found to be improved. The placement of boron fortified tar coated Konkan Annapurna Briquettes can reduce the recommended dose of fertilizer to the extent of 25% during Kharif season in Konkan region.
