Abstract:
The present investigations entitled “Studies on genetic variability in okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench)” were carried out at the Horticulture Research Farm-I of the Department of Horticulture, School of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University vidya vihar Raebareli road Lucknow- 226025(U.P.), India during the rainy season 2018. The experiment was laid out in an RBD randomized block design with three replications. The present study involved evaluation of seventeen genotypes of okra. The observations on various attributes recorded revealed that the maximum germination percent (71.67), days to 50% flowering (47.00), plant height (24.87), stem diameter (1.07), no. of branches per plant (6.32), leaves per plant (8.08), fruit length (13.43), fruits circumference (6.20), average fruit weight (21.33), no. of fruits per plant (12.73), acidity (0.74), TSS (7.43), ascorbic acid (11.62), moisture percent (83.73) and total fruit yield per plant (134.20). Analysis of variance showed significant differences among all the genotypes for all the characters studied. Genotypes Punjab Padmini, Kashi Pragti, Kasha Kranti, D-1-875, Pusa Sawani gave higher yield and also performed better for other horticultural traits under Lucknow conditions of Uttar Pradesh.
