Abstract:

Okra [Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench], is an important crop which is widely cultivated in different parts of the world mostly for human consumption and also for industrial use as fibre. The okra production in India, is hindered by occurrence viral diseases, like Yellow Vein Mosaic Virus (YVMV) disease and Okra Enation Leaf Curl Virus (OELCV) disease, spread by an insect vector, namely whitefly (Bemisia tabaci Gen), which affect okra production in terms of yield and fruit quality as well. The disease cannot control properly by using chemicals as concerned to environment and health issues, which remained us with practical option i.e., use of resistant/tolerant varieties for production. A huge research has been done in the direction of virus resistant variety development and to identify the different genetic source of resistance. In this review, the efforts have been made to expound the genetics of resistance to YVMV and OELCV in okra and also to provide complete information diversity of begomoviruses which affect the production of okra.
