Abstract:

Optimum plant density along with suitable varieties plays a significant role with respect to the growth, yield, and quality in okra. The present experiment was conducted to assess the suitable combinations of different varieties and planting distances and their effects on various quantitative and qualitative attributes of okra at Vegetable Research Farm, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, BHU, Varanasi. Variety Kashi Pragati perform well at spacing (45×45 cm) in respect to total yield as compare to other variety and spacing. Branches are more seen when plant sown at wider spacing (45×60 cm). There are different parameters performed well at different spacing to different variety. In this experiment it is found that the number of seed per pod found better among close spacing (45×30 cm) as compare to other spacing. Among different variety, Kashi Kranti produce more number of seed per pod as compare to other variety. Seeds weight of variety Pusa Sawani is more at wider spacing (45×60 cm) as compare to other variety and spacing. At last it is concluded that spacing (45×45 cm) are best spacing for okra sowing because the plant gets optimum space for proper growth, at spacing (45×30 cm) there is competition for nutrient, light etc., at spacing (45×60 cm) there is lesser plant population ultimately lead to yield reduction. Variety Kashi Pragati performs better as compare to other variety. In respect to farmer benefit from this trail it is concluded that optimum spacing and varities play important role for farmer benefit. Due to optimum spacing there are less competition between plant for nutrient, moisture, and light and it also help in proper weeding between the plan and ultimately to increased yield. The cost of cultivation is also reduced leading to enhanced profit.
