Experiment carried out to get information on magnitude of heterosis for fruit yield and its related components; adopting Griffing’s diallel analysis (Method II, Model I) involving eight parents and their resultant 28 F1 hybrids (excluding reciprocal cross) along with a commercial hybrid check ‘GJOH-4’ of okra; tested at College farm, N.M. College of Agriculture, Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari, during kharif–2019. The hybrids viz., GAO-5 x NOL-18-14 followed by Arka Abhay x NOL-18-14, NOL-18-12 x NOL-18-14, NOL-18-14 x NOL-18-17, Arka Abhay x GAO-5 and NOL-18-14 x NOL-18-15 exhibited higher standard heterosis in for fruit yield and its yield contributing characters involving elite lines as the parents suggested that there is a good scope of exploiting heterosis commercially and also possibility of isolating desirable segregants.
