Abstract:
The present investigation, entitled “Generation mean analysis in Okra (Abelmoschusesculentus (L.) Moench)” was undertaken using six generations viz., P1, P2, F1, F2, BC1 and BC2 derived from two crosses namely Pusa A4 x Phule Utkarsha and Arka Bahar x IC 31032A. The material was evaluated in a Randomized Block Design with two replicates during kharif, 2016. The characters studied were days to 50 % flowering, plant height (cm), number of branches per plant, inter-nodal length (cm), number of nodes per plant, number of fruits per plant, fruit length (cm), fruit diameter (mm), fruit weight (g), powdery mildew severity (%), fruit borer infestation (%) and fruit yield per plant (g). None the F1’s in both the crosses exhibited significant better parent heterosis except plant height in Pusa A4 x Phule Utkarsha and inter-nodal length in both crosses. Whereas both crosses exhibited high standard heterosis and inbreeding depression for fruit yield and its component characters under study.
