Four exotic rootstock (EC 755655, EC 755656, EC 755657 and EC 755658) were grafted onto Arka Anamika, PA4, Bihar local-3 and Pusa Sawani scions to determine compatibility. Experimental design included 20 days old scion on 20 days old stock, 20 days old scion on 30 days old stock and 30 days old scion on 20 days old stock compared with survival percentage of 16 grafts. Here 16 grafts as treatments. Day’s vs. grafts were also compared to further explore grafts options. Average number of days for graft fusion and survival rate measured for each scion/rootstock combination. T16 – EC 755658 + Arka Anamika grafts had the highest grafting success rate rootstock graft union 8.07 days and 89.00 percentages. While all other rootstock genotypes had statistically similar and higher success rate. There was no significant difference in time to graft fusion among any grafted genotypes. High compatibility was observed in 30 days old scion on 20 days old stock suggest it. Potential use as a intraspecific grafting rootstock in area where access to seed in readily available.

Key words: Okra, Graft, Genotype, Rootstocks
