Genetic Studies on Earliness in West African Okra (Abelmoschus caillei [A. Chev.] Stevels)
Adeniji Olawale Taiwo

A total of 3, 360 plants from six generations of West African Okra (P1, P2, F1, F2 BC1, BC2) derived from crosses between early and late maturing accessions of West African Okra were used to evaluate inheritance pattern of earliness. Using the generation mean analysis, the additive gene effect was important in the inheritance of earliness as compared with other gene effects. A high additive gene accounts for high heritability estimates recorded for earliness. As found in the study the relative proportion of additive gene effect was important for high heritability estimates recorded. This suggests that its contribution to the inheritance of earliness is ideal for developing hybrids and purelines.
