Abstract

The present investigation entitled “Effect of time of sowing
and spacing on seed yield and quality in okra cv. Pusa
Bhindi-5 was carried out at Research Farm, Division of
Vegetable Science, IARI, New Delhi during Kharif-2017, The
experiment consisted of three date of sowing, viz. D1 (15th
June), D2 (30th June), D3 (15th July) and three spacing i.e.,
75×25cm (S1), 60×25cm (S2) and 50×25cm (S3). The
experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design (RBD)
with four replications and the quantitative data recorded
were subjected to analysis of variance. The time of sowing
and spacing had significant influence on plant height and
number of leaves at 30, 45 and 60 days after sowing. Time of
sowing had also significantly affected the days to first
flowering, number of pod per plant, seed yield per plant,
seed yield per hectare and 1000 seed weight. Based upon
the results obtained from this study, it was concluded that
the higher seed yield with better quality trait in seed crop of
okra cv. Pusa Bhindi-5 was obtained on 15th June sowing
with the spacing of 50×25 cm under Delhi conditions
