Abstract


The present investigation was conducted with F2 generation of three crosses at fields of Department ofGenetics and Plant Breeding, University of Agricultural Sciences, GKVK, Bangalore during summer season 2011. The present investigation revealed that the magnitudes of fruit yield was positively and significantly correlated with fruit weight, fruit length in respect to F2 generation of C-I, fruit weight and days to flowering in C-II and fruit weight and primary branches in C-III. This indicated that the fruit yield could be improved through indirect selection of these traits in okra. The fruit weight exerted maximum direct effect on fruit yield per plant in all the crosses. In view of positive significant association and maximum direct effect on fruit yield, the trait; fruit weight establishes a conclusive effectiveness of selection.
