An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of cow droppings and poultry litter on the growth and yield of okra. The two factors experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD). The highest level of cow droppings (19 ton/ha) produced the best result on plant height (71.66 cm.), number of leaves (17.71), leaf length (18.70 cm.), leaf breadth (25.54 cm.), green pod yield/plot (2.98 kg), pod yield/ha (8.30 ton) while the lowest green pod yield/pot (1.98 kg), pod yield/ha (5.51 ton) were produced from control treatment. The combined effect of various level of cow droppings and poultry litter also found significant. The maximum cow droppings and poultry litter (19 t/ha & 16 t/ha) showed the best performance on plant height (76.88 cm.), number of leaves (18.16), leaf length (19.52 cm.) and leaf breadth (26.48 cm.).
