Abstract

The present investigation was carried out to evaluate the quantitative characters of different genotypes of okra planted in plot size of 5.40 m2 with the spacing of 60 X 30 cm. Observations were recorded on plant height, number of branches per plant, stem diameter at final harvest, days to 50% flowering, number of pods per plant, weight of pods per plant, pod length, pod diameter and average pod weight. On the basis of overall performance of okra genotypes, it may be concluded that there was significant variation observed for growth and yield. Among all two genotypes namely, PB-520 and PB-236 were found better and superior for most of the characters and these genotypes may be recommended for cultivation under Tarai conditions of Uttarakhand.
