The Evaluation of Some of Okra Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench Varieties Sowing in Different Dates under Plastic House Conditions.

Abstract

The field experiment was conducted in plastic house of followed to the research station of Horticulture and landscape design department /college of agriculture/Tikrit university at the season 2012/2013 to study the Evaluation of seven okra varieties which are (Samara, Sultani, Cleson, Clemson spinless, Clemson spinless 80, Mousully, and Btera) with two dates sowing (20/12/2012 and 10/1/2013). Split plot system was used a distributed as R.C.B.D. It was done with three replicates. The results showed that Sultani significant mental in plant length character. Whereas Clemson spinless 80 showed significant mental in branches number and fruit weight. The Mousully variety showed significant increment in each of plant fruit number, plant yield, and dry matter percentage of fruit. According to the dates, the first one showed significant increment in each of plant length character, plant fruits number, plant yield, and dry matter percentage of fruit so it gave higher rate reached 143.989 cm, 68.50 fruit/plant, 435.32 g, and 16.092 %. The interaction in Clemson spinless 80 variety that the first date shows significant increment in plant length character, branches number, stem diameter, whereas the Mousully variety which agriculture in the first date showed significant increment in each of fruits number of plant , plant yield , and dry matter percentage of fruit which gave higher average in these characters 89.80 fruit/plant , 606.50 gm , and 17.457% successively . The fruits weight character of as Clemson spinless 80 showed significant increment which sows in the second date to the other treatments.
