Abstract:

In order to evaluate the influence of fruit positions and fruit retention loads on seed yield and yield contributing traits of okra, an experiment was conducted in 2016 at Vegetable Research farm, Kalyanpur by using Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications. The okra variety, Arka Anamika was tested with 12 treatment combinations (consisted of two fruit retention loads as factor – I and six fruit positions as factor – II). Observations were recorded on seed yield and yield contributing traits. Results revealed the significant variation between factors and their levels. Significantly highest values for number of fruits/ plant, fruit length(cm), number of seeds/ fruit and green fruit yield were recorded in R1 (Retention of fruits borne on different nodes for seed purpose and harvesting remaining fruits for vegetable purpose) fruit retention load over R 2 ((Retaining all fruits). Among the fruit positions, P1 (From fruits borne on 1-3 nodes) position recorded significantly maximum values for most of the yield and yield contributing traits. Thus, it is concluded from the research work that for harvesting highest fruit length, number of fruits per plant, number of seeds per fruit and green fruit yield, the treatment combination R1P1 (Retention of fruits borne on 1-3 nodes for seed purpose and harvesting remaining fruits for vegetable purpose) and for getting highest seed yield, the treatment combination R1P6 (Retention of all fruits for seed purpose) may be adopted.
