A  study of effect of foliar application of gibberellic acids (GA) and napthalene  acetic acids  (NAA)  each  at   0, 10, 20 and 30  ppm  concentrations  revealed  that  plant  growth,  phonological parameter, yield-attributing  parameters  and yield of okra increased significantly with the increase in concentration. The application of  GA at 30 ppm gave maximum fruit  length, fruit thickness, green fruits yield and dry weight of fruits. Similarly,  30 ppm  NAA  gave  maximum fruit length, fruit  thickness, green  fruits  yield  and  dry  weight  of  fruits. The  treatment  interactions  were  found  significant only at  45 DAS stage in plant height,  at 15 DAS stage  in case of  leaves/plant and only  at 45 and 60 DAS stage  in  case  of  branches / plant. The highest net returns was obtained with application of  30 ppm each of  GA and NAA .
