Okra [Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench] is one of the much widespread vegetable crops owing to ease in cultivation, quite dependable yield, and acclimatization to variable moisture conditions, and soil types. A field experiment was undertaken to find out the individual as well as the interaction effects along with the suitable combinations of sowing date and planting distance to evaluate the growth, yield, and quality of okra at two locations viz., Vegetable Research Farm, I.Ag.Scs., BHU, Varanasi and Lalganj Village, Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh during the year 2015 and 2016. Among the different treatments intermediate spacing (60 × 60 cm) with D3 (30th June sowing) performed better than other treatments for most of the growth, flowering, yield, and quality characteristics, followed by closer spacing (60 × 45 cm) with D3 (30th June sowing) therefore this combination can be recommended after conducting more trials so as to arrive at conclusive findings for the farmers of Varanasi, Mirzapur, and adjoining areas.
