The study was designed to investigate the effect of different levels of N.P.K fertilizer on six cultivars of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus). Data collected at different sampling periods included plant height, total leaf area, number of pods and fresh weight of pods. The application of N.P.K 20:10:10 at 250kg/ha level was significantly different from others in growth and yield parameters. Higher mean values were observed with 250kg/ha level followed by 150kg/ha. Cultivar LD – 88 performed better in number of pods and fresh pod weight. Other cultivars had areas where they performed well. The application of 250kg/ha level of N.P.K.20:10:10 fertilizer is appropriate in attaining high pod yield in Asaba and Cultivar LD-88 showed the best performance in Asaba soil.
