Description

Okra is a excellent choice for adding huge amounts of organic matter with its large leaves, thick stems, and dense root system.  This canopy of vegetation shades out weeds completely.  Okra has a great root structure that adds biomass and anchors soil in place, making it a safe home for the beneficial organisms that live there.

Okra is a great beneficial insect attractant.  Being related to the hibiscus, it is obvious identifying its large yellow flowers.

Okra is nice as a vegetable and food source.  Often times when planting in a mix, it is ideal to wait until the majority of the different plants go to flower before termination to get the maximum benefit.  During these times okra becomes a nice vegetable treat since they are early to flower and seed.
