EFFECT OF MICRONUTRIENTS ON SEED PRODUCTION IN OKRA.R.V. Patil, S.V. Kolase and K.G. Kadam
The experiment was carried out at Breeder Seed Production (Vegetable) farm, MPKV, Rahuri during Kharif 2004- 05 to find out the effect of micronutrients on seed production in okra. It was found that the seed yield of okra can be increased significantly by three sprays of mixture of all nutrients (i.e.Boric acid, Zinc sulphate,Ammonium molybdate, Copper sulphate, Ferrous sulphate, Manganese sulphate) at 100 ppm, first spray was given before flowering, second spray after third picking and third 15 days after second spray.The maximum seed germination, seed vigor and seed yield was recorded 86.33%, 6.78 and 4.53 q/ha respectively, followed by commercial formulation (Multiplex), while the minimum germination percentage 86.33 %, seed vigor 6.78 and seed yield 4.53 q/ha respectively was recorded in the treatment Control (water spray).
