Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2019-2020 at Instructional Farm, Department of Vegetable Science, Faculty of Horticulture, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola to study the “Effect of plant growth retardants on growth and quality of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.). The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with three replications and ten treatments. The treatments were Cycocel (CCC), Maleic Hydrazide (MH), Ethrel and control, sprayed at two different stages viz., 30 and 50 days after sowing. Spraying of CCC 500 ppm at 30 and 50 days after sowing significantly influenced on increase in numbers of fruit per plant length of fruit, diameter of fruit, Number of seeds per fruit and weight of seed per fruit. Significantly highest fruit yield per plant, fruit yield per plot and fruit yield per hectare as well as quality parameters like test weight, graded seed yield and germination percentage was noted at CCC 500 ppm. The minimum fruit yield was received in control.
