Abstract:
                  This investigatory project was conducted to test the affectivity of organic and synthetic fertilizers when apply on okra plant. It also aims to test whether, which is better to use between the two fertilizers. In order to conduct the study we have used okra seeds, polyethylene bag and cemetery soil as organic fertilizer, synthetic fertilizer, and black soil, labeled it as setup A (Organic Fertilizer) setup B (Synthetic Fertilizer). Then we observed the changes in the plant for 1 week. After several days, we observed some changes in the plant like the increasing number of its height and leaves.
                      We therefore conclude that the organic fertilizer we used is better than the synthetic fertilizer because it provides faster growth of the plant.

Background of the study:
                  Today’s generation, people, specifically farmers, usually used fertilizers to their plants. Plant’s needs fertilizer to absorb their required nutrients in order to grow faster and healthy. Fertilizers are broadly divided into organic fertilizers, and inorganic fertilizers. Organic fertilizers are composed of organic plant or animal matter, while the inorganic fertilizers are the commercial fertilizers. Conservative estimates report 30 to 50% of the crop yields are attributed to natural or...
