Abstract:

Field trials were conducted to evaluate green fruit and seed production of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench) cv. Arka Anamika at varying sowing dates The experiment was conducted at ICAR-Indian Institute of Vegetable Research, Varanasi (U.P.) during spring summer season from January to May 2014 to find out the appropriate sowing date for yield and seed production of okra cultivar Arka Anamika. Five sowing dates viz. 20th January (T1), 30th January (T2), 09th February (T3), 19th February (T4) and 01st March (T5) were used as treatment variables. Observation were taken 30 days after sowing (DAS) at every 20 days interval for study of different morphological traits. From the results obtained, it can be concluded that the optimal sowing date for okra variety Arka Anamika would be first week of March for prominent yield and seed production. Seed yield is correlated with the performance of yield contributing attributes and a perusal of data pertaining to seed yield components viz. number of flowers/plant, number of pods/plant, diameter of fruit, weight of fruit, fruit length, and number of seeds/pod revealed that the environment was more favorable for okra variety Arka Anamika. The higher germination percentage and seed vigour index was recorded from 19th February and 1st March sowing because the matured pods faced less amount of rainfall during their harvesting period, resulting to more production of bold seeded pods at that time. It was produced prominent yield and seed production when the crop was sown on 1st week of March which was found superior in seed yield and its components over rest of the sowing dates.
