DescriptionOkra is more remunerative than the leafy vegetables. Fresh okra fruits are important and used as vegetable.. Tender green fruits are cooked in curry and also used in soups. The root and stem are useful for clearing cane juice in preparation of jaggery. Its ripe seeds are roasted, ground and used as a substitute for coffee in turkey. Matured fruits and stems containing crude fibre are used in the paper industrythe crop is basically adapted to tropical climate and vigorous warm humid weather for best growth and production.It is susceptible to drought and low night temperatures. For seed germination optimum soil moisture and a temperature and a temperature range between 25 and 35 °C is required, with fast germination observed at 35 °C. Seeds fail to germinate below 17 °C. At temperature above 42 °C flower buds in most of the cultivars may desiccate and drop causing yield losses. The optimum temperature range for growth is 20-30 °C .Sunlight is equally important for bhendi crop. A 50% reduction in sunlight during first three weeks after sowing has adverse effect on yield.It can be grown in all kinds of soils ranging from sandy loam to clay. However, high yields can be obtained in loose friable, well manured loamy soils having better drainage. The soil optimum ph for okra ranges from 6-6.8.
