Abstract

Genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance as percent of mean were studied among the 25 germplasm lines of okra Significant differences among genotypes were observed for all the characters under study. Plant height (cm), number of fruits per plant and number of seeds per fruit observed high GCV and PCV. Plant height (cm), number of seeds per fruit, and number of fruits per plant recorded high heritability coupled with high GCV and high genetic advance as per cent of mean indicates selection could be effective for improvement in these characters.
