Abstract

Field studies were carried out to compare growth characteristics of Okra seedlings in two different sol media. The soil media were untreated soil (control) and lime treated soil. Data was collected on parameters such as germination time, plant height, leaf area, number of leaves and fruiting emergence. Data on germination time was obtained at days after planting while, those on plant height, leaf area, number of leaves and fruiting emergence was obtained at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 weeks after transplanting. The results showed that there were significant differences (P<0.05) between plant heights, of Okra seedlings in the two different soils while there were no significant differences in leaf area, number of leaves and fruit emergence of Okra seedlings grown in the untreated soil and lime treated soil. The seedlings grown in lime  treated soils had the earliest germination time,(2 days,) highest plant height (25.45cm) number of leaves (9,) fruit emergence (7) and leaf area (20.90cm) compared to seedlings grown untreated soil which had an average plant height of (14.36cm), number of leaves (7), fruit emergence (5) and leaf area (18.44cm). It is therefore recommended that soil treated with lime which exhibited a better growth performance should be adopted in cultivating okra.
