Abstract:

Twenty germplasm lines of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench) were evaluated in a randomized block design with two replications at Vegetable Research Farm, The field experiment was carried out at Horticulture Research Scheme (Vegetable) and Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, VNMKV, Parbhani, during the Kharif season, 2016-17.Twenty okra genotypes were studied for evaluation of correlation and path co-efficient analysis of fruits yield and yield attributes in okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.). Plant height, number of branches, number of fruits per plant, inter nodal length, last harvest, fruit length, fruit girth, fruit weight, number of fruits per plant, number of seeds per fruit, 100 seed weight, number of picking and iodine content, were found to possess significant and positive correlation with fruit yield per plant. It was observed that with increase in plant height and less intermodal length, there was corresponding increases of fruit yield per hectare. Path coefficient analysis of different yield and yield contributing traits on fruit yield per plant revealed with plant height, number of branches per plant inter nodal length, days to first flowering, days to 50% flowering, days to first harvest, days to last harvest, fruit length, fruit weight, number of fruits per plant, number of seeds per fruit, 100 seed weight and crude fiber content, iron content showed positive direct effect on fruit yield these characters play a major role in recombination breeding and suggested that direct selection based on these traits will be rewarded for crop improvement of okra.
