Abstract:

The experiment was conducted to know the effect of four plant extracts viz. neem, garlic, Cassia tora, and ginger extract were used for different soaking period 0, ½, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 hours) for testing the efficacy of plant extract against seed mycoflora of okra. In different plant extract average highest germination was observed in neem extract treated okra seed 67.32 % followed by garlic (64.10%), Cassia tora (61.60%) and lowest was in ginger extract treated seed (54.64%), in case of soaking period average highest germination was observed in five hours of soaking period (74.69%) followed by four hours (73.13%), three hours (69.69%), two hours (61.56%), one hours (55.94%), half hours (50%) and lowest germination was observed in zero hours of soaking period (48.44%). In different plant extract average highest mycoflora was observed in garlic extract treated okra seed (32.86 %) followed by ginger (32.32 %), Cassia tora (31.40 %) and lowest was in neem extract treated seed (29.46 %), in case of soaking period average highest mycoflora was observed in zero hours of soaking period (35.31 %) followed by three hours (33.43%), one hours (31.56 %), two hours (30.93 %), half hours (30.93 %), five hours (29.37 %) and lowest mycoflora was observed in four hours of soaking period (29.06 %).
