Effect of planting density and gibberellic acid on growth and yield of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.)

Author(s): Jitendra Singh Rajput, Khiromani Nag and Suresh Kumar Yadav
Abstract: In order to explore the possibility of improving growth and yield of okra an experiment entitled “Effect of planting density and Gibberellic acid on growth and Yield of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.)” have been conducted at the research farm of AKS University, Sherganj Satna. During kharif seasons of 2015-16. The experiment comprised three level of Gibberellic acid such as 0ppm, 10ppm, and 20ppm and three spacing’s viz., 60 x 30cm, 60 x 45cm and 60 x 60cm. Experiment was laid out in RBD (with factorial concept) 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 the parameters such as Plant height (cm), number of leaves per plant, number of branches per plant and phenological parameter i.e. days taken to first flower initiation, and yield parameters such fruit yield per plant (g) and fruit yield per plot (kg).
