Incidence of okra mosaic virus at different growth stages of okra plants ([Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench) under tropical condition

  The degree of okra mosaic virus (OMV) at different growth stages of okra plants was studied using a netted barrier method. In a two factor RCB design with three replications, a 2 m high netted barrier were laid out in unit plots of 2 x 2 m using eight treatments: T1- Netting up to 7 days after seedling emergence (DAE); T2- Netting up to 14 DAE; T3- Netting up to 21 DAE; T4- Netting up to 28 DAE; T5- Netting...
