Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to carry out a comparative evaluation of the physicochemical properties of A field trial was undertaken during 2014 summer season to determine the “Effect of plant growth regulators on flowering, yield and quality aspects of summer okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench) Var. Varsha Uphar” at Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Dapoli. The experiment consisted of three treatments viz, cycocel (200, 400 & 600 ppm), PBZ (150, 250 & 300 ppm) and ethrel (150, 250 & 300 ppm) was sprayed once at 30 DAS. From the results the observations were recorded on various traits and concluded that the lowest days to first flowering and 50 per cent flowering, nodal position of first flower, highest total number of harvestings, number of fruits per plant, yield per plant and per hectare, weight of a single fruit, fruit breadth, Vitamin – ‘A’ and crude fiber per cent were recorded most in CCC @ 600 ppm while maximum number of nodes, lowest absolute growth rate (AGR) and relative growth rate (RGR) of plant, fruit length and ascorbic acid were higher in ethrel @ 300 ppm.
