Abstract:

In today's context of shrinking arable land and exploding human population, productivity of any commercial crop plays a major role. Though India is the largest producer of okra in the world, its productivity (11.9 MT/ha) is too low when compared to other countries. Several factors contribute towards high productivity viz. seed quality, management practices, fertiliser use, temperature, rainfall etc. but good quality seed is of prime importance. Only good quality seed can achieve true genetic potential of an improved cultivar. So an improved variety should reach the farmers in a short span of time. To achieve this, seed multiplication rate has to be increased, keeping quality of seed intact. Hence the present study was framed to achieve this objective by altering architecture of plant for high seed yield and quality.
