STUDIES ON MORPHOLOGICAL AND YIELD PARAMETERS OF TWO VARIETIES OFOKRA Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench V.N:S:N IN SOKOTO, NIGERIA

Sukuni, M. and Aliyu, U..

Abstract
Field trials to study the variation in morphological and yield parameters among two varieties (Jokoso and Ex-Sokoto) of okra were carried out at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto Fadama Teaching and Research Farm, Kwalkwalawa village, Sokoto, Nigeria during 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 dry seasons. Treatment comprised of two varieties of okra Jokoso (an improved variety from IAR, Zaria) and Ex-Sokoto (a local variety from vegetable growers at Kwalkwalawa village, Sokoto), laid out in a randomized complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Results revealed that Days to 50% flowering was not significantly affected by varietal effect. On the other hand, number of leaves per plant, number of fresh fruits per plant and total fresh fruits yield (t ha-1) were significantly (P < 0.05) higher in Jokoso okra variety. Based on the results obtained from this research, it may be concluded that Jokoso okra variety could be selected for increased okra production in the study area.

Key words: Studies, Morphological, Yield, Okra, Varieties
