Abstract

A field experiment was conducted at the Horticulture Farm, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh to study the effect of variety and panting date on the growth and yield of okra. Three planting dates (1 February, 15 February and 2 March) and three varieties (BARI Dherosh-1, Arka Anamica and Annie Oakley) were used as treatment variables. Layout system was randomized complete block design under factorial arragement with three replications. Planting date had significant influence on yield contributing characters and yield of the three varieties tested. Significantly higher yield was obtained (9.11 t/ha) from Annie Oakley variety when shown on 15 February, compared to other dates. Higher pod yield with 15 February sowing was mainly due to increased number of pods/plant, pod size and pod weight. Annie Oakley variety enhanced plant growth and resulted greater pod weight (22.28 g) to other varieties cultivated. The highest BCR was recorded from the treatment combination of variety Annie Oakley with 15 February planting date. Results of the study revealed that 15 February sowing would be profitable for variety Annie Oakley cultivation under Mymensingh condition.
