      <Abstract>An experiment was conducted during summer 2018 at Agronomy Field Unit, College of Agriculture, Navile, Shivamogga. Karnataka. Okra (cv. Arka Anamika) was irrigated using Normal Water (NW), Treated Sewage Water (TSW) and Untreated Sewage Water (UTSW) alone and in conjunctive mode constituting nine treatments replicated thrice using RCBD design. Sewage water of both treated and untreated are obtained from college campus, generated continuously and in large quantities. Recommended package was followed to grow the crops. Irrigation with TSW and UTSW altered the chemical properties of the soil as compared to the application of NW. The results revealed that application of TSW recorded with higher height (168.50), number of leaves (33.00) and number of branches (4.47). However, sewage irrigated soils were much below the threshold limit of salinity helping better crop growth components and yield. Application of TSW responded with higher fruit yield of 32.35 t ha-1 over the application of NW (25.20 t ha-1) and UTSW (21.61 t ha-1). It is also interesting to note that in the conjunctive mode of application, either one or two times of NW application fb TSW in cyclic mode achieved 28.12 and 29.22 t ha-1 there by recording nearer yield to that of plots receiving TSW. It also paves the way to conclude that the sewage water obtained from campus has the least influencing factors thereby affected negligibly on crop growth indicating its potential use.</Abstract>
