Evaluation of Different Cultivars of Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L.) under the Agro-climatic Conditions of Dera Ismail Khan

Farooq Ali Khan, Jalal-ud-din, Abdul Ghaffoor and Kashif Waseem Khan


Five different cultivars of okra viz. (penta green, pusa sawani, local cultivar, pusa green and clemson) were evaluated for their performance under the agro-climatic conditions of D.I.Khan. Minimum number of days to flowering (36.33), maximum pods per plant (43.42), highest pods weight per plant (446.23 gm) and in return the maximum yield of the pods (17.85 t ha-1) were obtained from the pusa green cultivar. Different parameters like days taken to germination, pod size and number of pods per plant remained non-significant for different okra cultivars.
