A field experiment was conducted at College Agronomy Farm, Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat to study the effect of spacing and levels of nitrogen on growth and seed yield of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench) during kharif season of the year 2013. Result revealed that wider spacing (75×20 cm) significantly increased growth attributes i.e. plant height and number of branches plant-1 except days to 50% flowering that remained non significant and yield attributes i.e. number of pods plant-1, pod length, pod girth, number of seeds pod-1 and test weight while the highest seed yield (1503 kg ha-1) was obtained from the closest spacing (45×20 cm). Nitrogen influenced all growth, yield attributes and seed yield (1699 kg N ha-1) significantly and it increased gradually with increasing levels of nitrogen upto 150 kg N ha-1. The interaction effect between spacing and nitrogen levels was found significant with respect to seed yield.
