Abstract

There was a significant influence of planting time on fruit yield (t/ha) of okra. The maximum fruit yield of 24.60 t/ha was recorded from July planted crop and a minimum fruit yield of 13.28 t/ha from September planted crop. The fruit yield also markedly varied with F1 hybrids. The closer spacing resulted higher marketable fruit yield. Higher benefit cost ratio per hectare (3.98 to 4.97) was achieved in late planting from July to September with closer spacing of 60 cm x 30 cm for all the F1 hybrids mainly due to high average market price of okra fruits during the crop period for their yield compared to early (March planted) and mid-season (May planted) crop.
