Effect of Plant Extracts on Okra mosaic virus Incidence and Yield Related Parameters of Okra

S.B. Bhyan, M.M. Alam and M.S. Ali

The experiment was conducted to find out the incidence of Okra mosaic virus (OMV) and its severity on yield and nutrition of okra under different phytopesticidal treatments. Four different plant extracts such as extracts of neem (Azadiracta indica) fruits, garlic (Allium sativum) bulbs, karamja (Pongamia pinnata) leaves and mehogoni (Swietenia macrophylla) seeds were considered as phytopesticidal treatments in this study. Plots with no phytopesticidal management were used as control. Highest rate incidence of okra mosaic virus was found in the plots with no phytopesticidal management. Though all the phytopesticides produced better performance than control, but karamja extract treated plants had minimal rate of incidence of this virus, with maximum plant height, flower production, fruits formation and highest yield.
