AbstractThis experiment was conducted on the cultivation of okra with varied treatments during a plot size of 150m2, that was assigned by Lovely Professional University at village maheru, Phagwara, Punjab. This study was undertaken with okra crop. It's a perennial crop that was mature to visualize the impact of straw and polyethylene sheet mulch on its growth and yield. Mulches always helpful to control weeds and making reduction in weed seed germination and helps to improves soil moisture conservation with maintaining soil temperature. The black polythene mulch provides good soil temperature to avoid seed germination where the seedlings are transplanted. With the use of polythene mulches there is organic mulches are also important to control the weeds and provide organic matter to soil. The soil fertility is increased by the straw mulch.
