Okra, Yield, Moringa, Neem, Onion, Growth


This study investigates the potential impacts of different natural extracts on the growth and productivity of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus). The extracts being examined include water, moringa extract, neem extract, rose extract, and onion extract. The study employs a controlled experimental design, exposing okra plants to various botanical treatments in a controlled environment. Observing and studying parameters such as plant height, leaf area, flowering patterns, and fruit yield allows for a deeper understanding of the effects of each treatment. Preliminary findings suggest a notable enhancement in the growth and productivity of okra across various experimental conditions. Research has demonstrated that the application of Moringa extract has yielded notable improvements in plant height and overall biomass, suggesting its promising role as a growth enhancer. Neem extract is widely recognized for its pesticide properties, supporting plant health and mitigating the impact of pests on plants. Through the study of rose extract, we can gain insights into its influence on the flowering process and its potential to enhance reproductive performance. Furthermore, the biochemical composition of onion extract plays a crucial role in influencing fruit development and overall yield. The control treatment using water showcases the fundamental growth parameters, providing a point of reference for comparison with the botanical treatments. This research offers valuable insights into the potential advantages of utilizing plant extracts to enhance okra cultivation. It offers sustainable and eco-friendly options to improve crop productivity. The findings offer valuable insights into the convergence of plant biology and agricultural innovation, resulting in improved approaches to harnessing botanical resources for crop improvement.
