An experiment was conducted during rabi 2016 and kharif 2017 to the study effect of precision farming technologies including fertigation and black polythene mulching to know the effect on growth yield and quality of okra seeds of var. ArkaAnamika. The experiment consisted often treatments was laid out in a Randomised Block Design (RBD) with three replications. The maximum seed yield (14.05 q/ha), 100 seed weight (7.29g), germination percentage (94.33 %), germination speed (24.68), vigour (19.77), vigour index (3841.31) and shoot and root length (27.30 & 13.42cm) of seedlings was recorded at T4 -150:75:150 NPK kg ha-1 applied through fertigation (WSF) with mulch over un mulched treatment. In general, the fertigation treatments in combination with mulching resulted in significantly higherseed quality attributes in okra.
