Khalil ahmad khan and asrar-ul-haq

The ffect of (2-chloroethyl ) trimethyl ammonium chloride(CCC) on the yield of abelmoschus esculentus was studied . seeds of A. esculentus were soaked in 400, 800 and 1200 ppm of CCC for 24 hours. Treatment of okra with 400 ppm did not influence the time taken for flowering and fruit set, 800 and 1200 ppm of CCC delayed the flower intiation and fruit set . number of flowering was not influenced by 800 ppm CCC where as it decreased significantly in 400 and 1200 ppm. 800 ppm produced significantly higher number of fruits . fruit yield increased by 12.55 percent . dry weight of the seeds and number of seeds per fruit indreased slightly but nin0significantly at three concentrations . no significant effect was observed on fruit size.
