Abstract:

In the present experiment, a study was conducted during kharief 2012 at three locations. Also the crosses were evaluated at the farmer’s field on the basis of questionnaire developed. The basic material consisted of ten diverse genotypes of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. (Moench) viz., SKBS-11, Pant Bhindi, IC-117018, Azad Ganga, Parbhani Kranti, Lam-1, GO-2, Red Bhindi, Aka Anamika and Pusa Sawani. The selected ten genotypes were crossed in all possible combinations and produced forty five crosses. The observations viz., days to first flowering, days to first pod picking, plant height, number of nodes, internodal length, pod length, pod girth, average pod weight, number of pods
plant-1, pod yield plant-1, number of seeds pod-1, 100 seed weight, seed yield plant-1, and pod yield were recorded. The results revealed wide range of heterotic pattern for different traits. The heterosis over better parent ranged from -11.38 to 8.82% for days to first flowering, -12.80 to 5.53% for days to first pod picking, 20.28 to -24.46% for plant h eight, 17.26 to -7.26% for number of nodes,-29.62 to -24.36% for internodal distance, -23.65 to-33.32% for pod length, -30.24 to 3.22% for pod girth,33.69 to -9.38% for average pod weight, 30.41 to -4.78% for number of pods -1, 57.13 to -0.43% for pod yield plant-1 and 55.00 to -0.38% for pod yield ha-1. The superior crosses identified through heterosis analysis and through farmers’ participatory mode of plant breeding were SKBS-11 x IC-117018, SKBS-11 x Parbhani Kranti, IC-117018 X Pusa Sawani, Pant Bhindi x Pusa saqwani and Pant Bhindi x Azad Ganga.
