The present investigation for the Evaluation of Okra [Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench] Hybrids for yield and yield attributes was carried out at Allahabad region with 11 hybrids and 3 check varieties during kharif -2014 under randomized block design with three replications. The data was recorded for sixteen quantitative characters viz., days to 50% germination, plant height(cm), number of leaves/plant, number of branches/plant, inter nodal length(cm), days to first flower appears, days to emergence of 50% blooming, first pod (fruit) occurring node, length of fruit (cm), fruit girth (cm), fresh weight of fruit (g), number of seeds per fruit, number of fruits per plant, fruit yield per plant (g), fruit yield per hectare (t) and per cent incidence of YVMV.To obtain and estimate the best hybrid for yield (quantitative) attributes and YVMV resistance. Fruit yield was ranged from 14.7 tonnes (OKHYB-12) to 24.5 tonnes (OKHYB-15) with an average of 18.5 tonnes and YVMV infestation on plants (%) was ranged from 0% (OKHYB-6, OKHYB-7 and OKHYB-13) to 64.17% (OKHYB-12) with an average of 28.9%. It is concluded that based on the mean performance of all the sixteen yield attributes, hybrids OKHYB-15, OKHYB-10 and OKHYB-4 were found superior and resistant to YVMV in performances than check varieties (Arka Anamika, Pusa Sawani and HOK-152).
Key words: Yield attributes, YVMV, Hybrids, Okra, Resistance.
