The experiment was undertaken to study the combining ability for yield and its attributing traits in okra. Information on the magnitude of combining ability was obtained for fruit yield per plant and its related components following line x tester mating design involving 15 diverse varieties/strains (10 lines and 5 testers). The 15 parents and their 50 resultant F1s were sown in a Randomized Block Design with three replications. Combining ability analysis revealed that the magnitude of non-additive variance was higher for fruit yield per plant and its contributing traits indicating the predominant role of non-additive gene action in the inheritance of the traits. Among females, JOL-08-7 (24.60) while, among males, Parbhani Kranti (8.11) were good general combiners for fruit yield per plant and related traits. The hybrid, JOL-08-7 x Parbhani Kranti (37.08) having high sca effects for fruit yield per plant also registered desirable sca effects for a number of branches per plant, internodal length, fruit girth and days to 50 per cent flowering.

Keywords: Line x Tester, Combining ability, Fruit yield, Okra.
