  Seeds of onion (Allium cepa L.) cv. Ailsa Craig were irradiated at various doses of gamma radiation (0, 10, 20, 40, 80 and 100 krad) and either tested immediately or stored for 24 h at 25oC before testing. Seed viability, final germination percentage, germination speed and seedling growth decreased, while electrical conductivity (EC) of seed leachates, time to complete 50% germination (T50), and percentage of abnormal seedlings increased with increase in radiation dose. After 24 h of storage, percentage of abnormal seedlings increased significantly, while root and overall seedling lengths were decreased. However, seed viability, EC of seed leachates, seed germination percentage, germination speed, T50 and shoot growth were unaffected by the storage. It was concluded that after storage, the damaging effect of irradiation was increased due to the continued effect of radiation.

  Experiment was laid out for evaluating one traditional insecticide (monocrotophos) and four non-traditional insecticides (decarafluron, Bacillus thuringiensis, monocrotophos + surfactant and chlorfenapyr) against okra jassid Amrasaca biguttula biguttula (Ishida). All the test insecticides were found to be effective in controlling okra jassid. However, on numerical basis, the lowest mean value of jassid population (3.75 individuals per leaf) was observed in the test area treated with monocrotophos plus surfactant.

  The fertilizers were applied @ 50, 75, 100, or 125 kg ha-1 N, 60, 80 or 100 kg ha -1 P2O5 and 60 or 80 kg ha-1 K2O in different combinations to okra cv. Pusa Sawani. Results divulged that seed germination was not affected statistically by the fertilizer application while plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of pods per plant, pod length and green pod yield were affected significantly and were highest at the highest dose of fertilizers.
