Abstract:

An experiment was conducted at College of Horticulture, Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Krishi Vidyapeeth, Parbhani, during 2018 to know the effect of different plant densities (60 x 30 cm,60 x 25 cm, 40 x 30 cm and 40 x 25 cm) and foliar spray of cycocel (0, 400, 600 and 800 ppm) on various fruit and yield attributes of okra. Experiment was laid in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications during summer season under shadenet house. The observations on fruit and yield attributes were recorded during investigation. Results revealed, that the significant effect of spacing levels on number of fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit yield per plot and fruit yield per hectare. Whereas, cycocel levels were found significant for the traits like days to first fruit set, days to first harvest, number of fruits per plant, average fruit weight, fruit length, fruit yield per plot and fruit yield per hectare. In case of interaction effects the characters like number of fruits per plant, average fruit weight, fruit length, fruit yield per plot and fruit yield per hectare was found significant. Remaining traits were not showed any significant performance under the experiment. The important characters like number of fruits per plant (9.38), average fruit weight (17.93 g), fruit length (8.26 cm), fruit yield per plot (10.28 kg) and fruit yield per hectare (16.13 Mt), were performed significantly maximum at 40 x 25 cm spacing with the foliar application of cycocel at 600 ppm. However, these characters were at par with the spacing 40 x 30 cm with the foliar application of cycocel at 800 ppm. Plant density either at 40 x 25 cm with cycocel at 600 ppm or 40 x 30 cm with cycocel at 800 ppm at 30 and 45 DAS was found better for yield in okra.
