ABSTRACT
An investigation was carried out during rainy season at the HorticultureResearch Farm, Department of Horticulture, Institute of Agriculture Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. The investigation comprised ten treatments viz.,three levels each of gibberellic acid GA3 (50, 75 and 100 ppm), cytokinin (50, 75 and 100 ppm) and NAA (50, 75 and 100 ppm) along with control (distilled water) were applied as foliar application at 30 and 40 days after transplanting. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with three replications. Results revealed that, the minimum number of days (49.97) to 1st edible fruits harvesting was recorded in 100 ppm GA3 which was statistically at par with 75 ppm GA3. The maximum fruit length (13.22 cm), fruit diameter (1.82 cm), number of seeds per fruit (50.13), number of fruits per plant (23.47), fruit yield per plant (354.30 g), highest fruit yield (141.72 q/ha), 100 seed weight (5.18 g), seed yield per plant (47.97 g) and highest seed yield (19.19 q/ha) were recorded with GA3 at 100 ppm. The maximum fresh fruit weight (15.85 g) was recorded in 50 ppm.

Key words : Cytokinin, Fruits, GA3, Kashi Pragati, NAA, Okra, Seed.
