Yield of okra as influenced by the different sowing dates and plant spacing
Author(s): BM Tandel, Prabhu Nayaka and KA Shah
Abstract: The experiment was conducted to study the yield of okra as influenced by the different sowing dates and plant spacing. Split plot design replicated thrice with four sowing dates as main plots (D1:- 1st October, D2:- 15th October, D3:- 1st November and D4:- 15th November) and three plant spacing as sub plots (S1:- 45x10 cm, S2:- 45x20 cm and S3:-45x30). The results revealed that the significantly highest plant height (120.82 & 117.53 cm), number of branches (2.07 & 2.02), number of nods per main stem (15.80 &15.66), number of leaves (10.02 & 10.19), number of pods (12.98 & 12.91), pods weight per plant (128.03 gm & 128.22 gm), number of picking (14.44 & 13.89) and yield per hectare (15.47 & 15.50 q/ha.) were recorded in 1st October sowing during both the year. The plant height, number of branches, number of nods per main stem and number of leaves were found significantly highest with the 45 X 20 cm spacing. Whereas significantly higher number of pods per plant (11.44 & 11.71), pods weight per plant (109.08 gm & 109.60 gm), number of picking (12.08 & 11.58), and yield per hectare(14.75 & 14.30 q/ha) were found in the same treatment (45 X 20 cm) during both the year then other 45X 10 cm and 45 X30 cm spacing.
