Abstract: An experiment was conducted at Horticulture Farm, Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Bangladesh from April to August 2012 to evaluate the different doses of nitrogen on growth and yield of okra (BARI Dherosh-1). Experiment consisted four levels of phosphorus viz. P0: 0 (control), P1: 70, P2: 80 and P3: 90 kg P2O5 ha using Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. Maximum plant height (87.8 cm), number of leaves (45.4 plant), leaf length (29.5 cm), petiole length (23.2 cm), stem diameter (2.3 cm), internode length (14.8 cm), number of branches (4.0 plant), fruit length (17.0 cm), fruit diameter (1.9 cm), number of flower buds (30.2 plant), number of fruits (22.5 plant) weight of individual fruit (11.4 g), fresh weight of leaves (294.5 g plant), dry matter content of leaves (11.4 ) and yield (7.32 kg plot and 17.0 t ha) was found from P2 whereas minimum from P0.
