Abstract:
The investigation was undertaken to study the influence of paclobutrazol and cycocel on growth and yield of okra (Var. Parbhani Kranti) at Mango Research Sub-Centre, Rameshwar, Deogad, Dist. Sindhudurg during the kharif season of the year 2016. The experiment was designed in randomized block design with three replications and seven treatments viz; T1: Control, T2: CCC (@ 250 ppm), T3: CCC (@ 500 ppm), T4: CCC (@ 750 ppm), T5: PBZ (@ 100 ppm), T6: PBZ (@ 200 ppm), T7: PBZ (@ 300 ppm). The growth retardants at respective concentration was sprayed on the plants at 30 days after sowing and second spray was given at 15 days after first foliar spray. At 90 days after sowing, the minimum plant height (89.30 cm) with lowest absolute growth rate (0.9456 cm day-1) was recorded in the treatment CCC @ 750 ppm (T4). The reduction in plant height was 13.01% over control in CCC @ 750 ppm treatment. The lowest average internodal length (4.63 cm) and highest number of leaves per plant (28.33) were also observed in CCC @ 750 ppm (T4) treatment. The maximum yield of fresh fruit (239.67 g plant-1 and 110.96 q ha-1) was recorded in CCC @ 500 ppm (T3) and minimum yield (208.00 g plant-1 and 96.30 q ha-1) was observed in control (T1) treatment.
