Abstract:

Optimum plant density along with appropriate sowing date 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 sowing dates and planting distances and their effects on various quantitative and qualitative attributes of okra at two locations viz., Vegetable Research Farm, I.Ag.Scs., BHU, Varanasi and Lalganj Village, Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh during the year 2015 and 2016. The intermediate spacing (60 × 60 cm) with D3 (30th June sowing) amongst various treatments, found to be the best in relation to most of the growth, flowering, yield, and quality characteristics, followed by closer spacing (60 × 45 cm) with D3 (30th June sowing). Further trials are needed to be conducted before arriving at a decisive finding and to recommend the appropriate combination to the farmers of Varanasi, Mirzapur, and adjoining areas.


Keywords: Okra, Spacings, Sowing dates, Interaction effect, Yield, Quality attributes.
