Quality Seed Production of Okra Book Description:

High quality seed is the key for successful agriculture in modern era. The seed quality as determined by vigour and viability of the seed, is influenced by the environmental conditions under which a seed crop matures. Besides environmental factors, seed production in okra is influenced by different factors such as sowing dates and plant geometry. Available reports suggest that planting dates play an important role in growth, fruit formation and seed yield in okra. The early sown crops experience high temperature and hot winds during their growth period resulting in stunted growth, less number of fruits and reduced seed yield. Whereas, the late sown crops which encounter high rainfall during flowering and fruit set are more prone to attack by insect-pests and diseases. Plant density also plays an important role in the seed production of okra. Keeping the above facts in view, this book was written describing the effect of date of sowing and plant geometry on growth, seed yield and seed quality of okra (variety Varsha Uphar). It also ascertains the relationship of different sowing dates and plant geometry with seed quality in okra.
