Response of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Monech) to humic acid on vertic ustochrepts

Response of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Monech) to humic acid on vertic ustochrepts

Advances in Plant Sciences 20(1): 215-216

A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of levels and methods of humic acid application on yield of Okra. The results revealed that number of leaves per plant, plant height, number of branches per plant, number of nodes per plant, internodes length, number of fruits per plant and weight of ten green pods were not influenced significantly by the application of different levels and methods of humic acid. The significantly highest pod length (14.3 cm) and girth (5.9 cm) was observed when humic acid was applied in soil @ 20 kg/ha. Soil application of humic acid @ 20 kg/ha produce significantly higher green pod (9254 kg/ha) and stalk yield (3819 kg/ha) which was statistically at par with soil application of humic acid @ 40 and 10 kg/ha. Among the methods, soil application of humic acid produce higher green pod and dry stalk yield followed by seed treatment and foliar application. The green pod yield was significantly and positively correlated With pod length (r = 0.918**), pod girth (r = 0.950**) and ten pod weight (r = 0.949**), while negatively with internode length (*r = 0.589*).
