Abstract:

The experiment was consisting the sixty different genotypes of okra and check varieties from diverse origin. Discriminant function analysis carried out for six traits namely days to first flowering, number of fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit diameter, fresh fruit weight and fruit yield per plant. The discriminant functions consisting six indices of single character, five indices of two characters, ten indices of three characters, nine indices of four, five index of five characters and one index for six characters respectively. Selection efficiency of the function was found enhancing by increasing the number of characters in the selection index. The index involving all the six characters recorded the maximum genetic gain and selection efficiency. Similarly using the three characters viz. fruit diameter, fresh fruit weight and fruit yield per plant (X4 + X5 + X6) were resulted more suitable for selecting the parents for hybridization.
