Abstract:

The seed of okra [Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench] have slow and poor germination when seeds are sown in early spring season due to low temperature. Laboratory experiment was conducted to study the effect of seed priming using plant extract on seed quality characters of okra. Various botanical leaf extracts used like Arjuna, Bael, Harad, Bahed, Arrapu, Neem, Reetha, Amla, Tulsi, Prosopis and Cow urine on seedling quality characters of phule vimucta variety of okra. The result concluded that priming with Arrapu (Albizia amara) Leaf Extract at (3%) for 12hrs increased the germination and seed vigour in Okra. Its exhibited high mean value for Seedling characters like seed germination percentage (96.50%), Speed of germination (09.77), root length (12.22cm), shoot length (16.39cm), seedling length (28.80), seedling fresh weight (1.03gm) and seedling dry weight (0.35gm), seed vigour index I (2427.95) and seed vigour index II (19.36).
