Pot experiments were conducted at green house in University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS), Kota Samarahan, Sarawak to determine Abelmoschus esculentus (okra) response to organic and inorganic sources of nutrients. Percentages in oil palm empty fruit bunch (EFB) that act as organic matter become the variable condition in the potting media of this project to compare with the okra growth performance with the application of N-P-K fertilizer. The experiment was construct with five treatments which has six replicates for each. Control treatment (T0) only being done with media consists of sand and soil. The normal practice (T1) which is mimics the plantation practice with media of soil, sand, organic matter and application of N-P-K fertilizer. The ratio of soil: sand: organic matter was 3:2:1 and applied with 30g in each pot every 2 two weeks. There were three treatments (T2, T3, and T4) where the empty fruit bunch (EFB) is varied in the growing media ratio. Treatment 2 (T2) consists of 20% EFB with media ration of 5:3:2 while treatment 3 (T3) contains 40% EFB with ratio of 4:3:3. Last treatment (T4) which is contains 60% EFB with media ratio 3:1:6. Parameters taken to show the growth performance were plant height, timing of flowering and blooming, and fresh weight of fruit harvested. The data collection was being done in 7 weeks from the transplanting process. The fruits were harvest in the day 6 after the flowers began blooming. From the study, treatment of 20% EFB (T3) in the growing medium showed the highest fruit yield compared to the T4.
