Fifty seven lines of okra including ten different genotypes along with forty five hybrids and two standard checks were evaluated in Randomized Block Design with two replication in Kharif 2012. Genetic variability were carried out to study characters days to 50 per cent flowering, Plant height at harvest, number of branches per plant, number of nodes per plant, days to first picking, number of fruits per plant, average length of fruit, average weight of fruit, yield per plant (g), yield per plot(kg), yield per hectare (qt) and reaction to yellow vein mosaic for identification of appropriate selection indices. The study revealed that highest genotypic and phenotypic coefficient of variance observed for number of branches per plant, fruit length, yield per plant and reaction to yellow vein mosaic virus. Highest estimates of heritability was recorded for yield per plant followed by fruit weight and reaction to yellow vein mosaic virus. Highest genetic advance was observed for number of branches per plant followed by number of ridge per fruit, yield per plant, fruit length and reaction to yellow vein mosaic.

Fifty seven lines of okra including ten different genotypes along with forty five hybrids and two standard checks were evaluated in Randomized Block Design with two replication in Kharif 2011. Correlation and Path analysis were carried out to study character association and contribution for days to 50 per cent flowering, Plant height at harvest, number of branches per plant, number of nodes per plant, days to first picking, number of fruits per plant, average length of fruit, average weight of fruit, yield per plant (g), yield per plot (kg), yield per hectare (qt) and reaction to yellow vein mosaic for identification of appropriate selection indices. Genotypic and phenotypic correlation revealed that at both level fruit yield was positively associated with number of fruits, number of nodes per plant, fruit length and fruit weight. Correlation and Path analysis revealed that characters days to first picking, plant height at harvest, number of nodes per plant and number of fruits per plant not only had positive significant association with yield per plant but also had high positive direct effects on marketable yield per plant and are regarded as the main determinants of yield per plant. If selection is based on these characters then improvement in yield will be efficient. Copyright © EM International. Source

A field experiment was conducted in the year 2010-11 and 2011-12 to find out the effect of organic and inorganic manures on growth and yield in acid lime. The plant growth parameters in respect of plant height in both season was found maximum in the plants treated with 75% RDF (450:225:225 g NPK) + 50 kg FYM+ 500 g AM/plant + 100g PSB /plant + 200g ZnSO4/plant, (T8) While mean plant spread and plant volume was maximum with T10 75% RDF (450:225:225g NPK) + 50 kg FYM + 100g Azospirillum + 100g PSB /plant + 200g ZnSO 4/plant during both season. Yield attributing characters viz., maximum fruit set with minimum fruit drop and highest fruit yield (number of fruits per plant, kg/plant and tons/ha) were observed with the application of 75% RDF 450:225:225g NPK + 50kg FYM+100g Azospirillum + 100g PSB /Plant+200g ZnSO4/plant.

Estimation of crop coefficient (Kc) and crop evapotranspiration (ETc) using remote sensing data is essential for planning irrigation water use in arid and semiarid regions. The study was conducted to test the suitability of remotely sensed Vegetation Indices (VIs) for modeling spatial crop coefficient, choosing most appropriate vegetation index among them for modeling and applying this model to estimate water requirement of wheat. The study area consisted of wheat growing five districts situated in central Maharashtra. Images of IRS-P6, AWiFS sensor were used to generate multi temporal vegetation indices RVI, NDVI, TNDVI, SAVI and MSAVI2. The week-wise VIs were correlated with week-wise recommended wheat crop coefficients which resulted in linear relationships/models. Simple linear regression analysis showed NDVI as a superior index for predicting crop coefficients of wheat. NDVI-Kc model showed highest R² and D values of 0.895 and 0.980 respectively with lowest values of SE, RMSE and PD of 0.120, 0.113 and 4.64 respectively. The crop coefficients (Kc), obtained by this NDVI-Kc model and reference evapotranspiration (ETo), estimated by Penman- Monteith equation, were used to compute wheat crop evapotranspiration (ETc) which represents the water requirement of wheat and found varying from 378.34 mm to 439.10 mm in the study area. © 2015, Association of Agrometeorologists.

In order to estimate the effect of plant growth regulators on rooting in cuttings of Fig, the present investigation was conducted at "Main garden of Department of Horticulture" Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola during the year 2009-2010. For the investigation 14 treatment combinations comprising two type of cutting and six treatment of plant growth regulator with one control were used. The results of the investigation indicated that, among two types of cuttings, hardwood cutting recorded maximum root growth, percentage of rooted cuttings survival percentage of rooted cuttings and root dry matter In respect of plant growth regulators, cuttings treated with 2500 ppm IBA+2500 ppm NAA gave maximum root growth, percentage of rooted cuttings, survival percentage of rooted cuttings and root dry matter in both hardwood and semihardwood cuttings, thus fig can can be propagated by hardwood cuttings treated with 2500 ppm IBA +2500 ppm NAA.
