The generation mean analysis involving six generations (P1, P2, F1, F2, B1 and B2) was carried out to study the nature and magnitude of gene effects for seventeen characters in okra. The study was conducted at Departmental Farm of Department of Agricultural Botany, College of Agriculture, VNMKV Parbhani during Kharif-17 season. The Mather’s individual scaling tests and Cavalli’s joint scaling tests were used to detect the presence or absence of the epistatic interactions. The results obtained showed the importance of additive, dominance and all three types of epistatic interactions for most of the crosses and characters viz., plant height, days to first flowering, number of branches per plant, fruit length, fruit weight, number of fruiting nodes per plant, number of fruits per plant, internodal length and yield per plant. For majority of crosses and characters duplicate epistasis was observed while for some crosses complementary epistasis was observed.

Keywords: Okra, Generation mean analysis, Scaling test, Gene effects, Epistasis
