Abstract:
Vermicomposttea consists of nutrients that contribute and are necessary for good yield performance of okra. Okra is a nutritious vegetable and a good source of income. Hence, a study on okra was conducted from October 2015 to January 2016 located 18°3’47” north latitude and 120°32’56” east latitude or 23° northeast City of Batac, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. It was conducted to: a) determine the productivity of okra using application frequency of vermicompost tea; b) determine the best application frequency of vermicompost tea that contribute high yield of okra and; c) determine the production economics of growing okra using vermicompost tea. The following treatments were used: no fertilizer: 1 -once a week, 2 -twice a week and 3 -thrice a week application of vermicompost tea, and 5 -inorganic fertilizer only. Treatments were assigned in the experimental units following a Randomized Complete Block Design in three replicates with a unit plot size of 12 m². Treatment effects were evaluated by yield performance of okra and production economics. The use of inorganic fertilizer and vermicompost tea provides the necessary nutrients for good yield components. Plants with fertilizer irrespective of sources significantly produced a higher percent marketable fruits and yield than no fertilizer. In general, vermicompost tea is more profitable than inorganic fertilizer.
