Abstract:
In order to explore the possibility of improving growth and yield of okra<strong> </strong>an experiment entitled “Effect of planting density and Gibberellic acid on<strong> </strong>growth and Yield of okra (<em>Abelmoschus esculentus</em> L.)” have been conducted<strong> </strong>at the research farm of AKS University, Sherganj Satna. During kharif<strong> </strong>seasons of 2015-16. The experiment comprised three level of Gibberellic acid<strong> </strong>such as 0ppm, 10ppm, and 20ppm and three spacing’s viz., 60 x 30cm, 60 x<strong> </strong>45cm and 60 x 60cm. Experiment was laid out in RBD (with factorial concept)<strong> </strong>with three replications. The results of the experiment showed that application of Gibberellic acid (20ppm) had significant influence on most of the parameters such as; Plant height (cm), number of leaves per plant, number of branches per plant and phenological traits i.e. days taken to first flower initiation and yield parameters such as; fruit length (cm), fruit yield per plant (g), fruit yield per plot (kg). The spacing 60 x 45cm had significant influence on most of<strong> </strong>the parameters such as Plant height (cm), number of leaves per plant,<strong> </strong>number of branches per plant and phenological parameter i.e. days taken to<strong> </strong>first flower initiation, and yield parameters such<strong> </strong>fruit yield per<strong> </strong>plant (g) and fruit yield per plot (kg).
