Abstract: The present experiment was conductedat Horticulture Instructional Farm, C. P. College of Agriculture, S. D. Agricultural University, Sardarkrushinagar, Gujarat during the Kharif season of 2015 in a factorial randomized block design with three replications. Twenty treatments were tested comprising of different fertilizer levels (Control, 25% RDF, 50% RDF, 75% RDF and 100% RDF) and biofertilizers (Azotobactor, PSB and Azotobactor + PSB). The results of the present investigation revealed that application of 100 per cent RDF significantly increased number of pod per plant (9.12), yield per plant (137.91g), yield per plot (2.80kg)and yield per hectare (115.06q) and days taken to last picking (103.54). Application of Azotobactor @ 20 ml/kg seed increased number of pod per plant (8.40), yield per plot (2.75kg) and yield per hectare (113.26q) whereas, combined application of Azotobactor + PSB @ 20 ml/kg seed should be significantly increased yield per plant (133.68g) and days taken to last picking (101.60). The application of 100 per cent RDF and combined application of Azotobactor @ 20 ml/kg seed should be significantly increased the gross return, net return and benefit cost ratio in okra cv. GAO-5 during Kharif season.
