Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at Main Experimental Station, Department of Vegetable Science, Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya during Kharif, 2019 in Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications using thirty -six genotypes of okra collected from different sources to study the extent of variability, heritability and genetic advance in per cent of mean for different quantitative traits. The analysis of variance for the design of experiment indicated highly significant differences among the genotypes for all the characters. Based on mean performance of genotypes NDO-37 (210.79) followed by NDO-26 (209.33), NDO-27 (199.41), NDO- 31 (208.97) and NDO-36 (209.12) were found as five most promising genotypes for fruits yield per plant. High magnitude PCV were observed in case of number of branches per plant (16.23) followed by fruit length (9.91), total fruit yield per plant (9.36).  High heritability was estimated for total fruit yield per plant (99.3) followed by average fruit weight (93.86), petiole length (92.80) number of branches per plant (84.54). High heritability coupled with high genetic advance were estimated for number of branches per plant (84.54,28.27) followed by total fruit yield per plant (99.13, 19.11) and average fruit weight (93.86, 14.29) which indicating opportunity for high selection response.
