Abstract:
An investigation was conducted in the farm of Sh. Jagdish Parshad at village Rampura, Teh. Abohar, Dist. Fazilka during the academic year 2018 to study the effect of different spacing on growth, fruit quality and yield of okra. The three different spacing were 30 cm, 45 cm, 60 cm were kept for experimentation. The effect of different spacing on plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of flower per plant, number of pod per plant and pod length. The different treatments showed variation in vegetative and pod characters. The obtained results indicated that the average maximum plant height, number of pod per plant and pod length were recorded in spacing (60 × 15 cm) and average minimum plant height and number of pod per plant were observed in spacing (45 × 15 cm). But average minimum pod length was observed in spacing (30× 15 cm). Average maximum number of leaves per plant and number of flower per plant were observed in spacing (45 × 15 cm) and average minimum number of leaves per plant and number of flower per plant were observed in spacing<sub> </sub>(60 × 15 cm).
