Variability in photoperiodic response in okra (Hibiscus esculentus L.)

, : Variability in photoperiodic response in okra (Hibiscus esculentus L.). Acta Horticulturae (53): 207-215

Okra cvs grown outdoors at different times of year in Nigeria were divided into 2 groups, depending on their response to photoperiod. The dry season or short day group had a critical day length of 121/4 h or less and the all season or neutral group had a critical day length of 121/2 h or more.
