DEVELOPMENT OF SEED QUALITY DURING SEED DEVELOPMENT IN OKRA

I. Demir
Changes in seed quality during development on the mother plant were investigated in okra. Mass maturity (the end of the seed-filling period) occurred 31 days after anthesis at which seed moisture content was around 71%. Maximum seed quality assessed by germination, emergence and rapid ageing test was recorded 52 days after anthesis. Maturation drying reduced seed moisture content to 12% at this harvest. Extreme delays in harvest did cause seed loss by shattering.
