Physiological response of yellow vein mosaic virus-infected okra [Abelmoschus esculentus]


Madhavi Singh, Bharat Maitreya

The effect of okra yellow vein mosaic virus infection on relative water content, mucilage content and chlorophyll content changes in field-grown okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) leaves was studied. Changes in relative water content, mucilage content and chlorophyll content in yellow vein mosaic virus- infected okra leaves were investigated. It was observed that highly resistant varieties to YVMV had recorded high chlorophyll content, lowest relative water content and crude fibre content whereas highly susceptible varieties to YVMV had recorded high relative water content, less chlorophyll content, mucilage content and minimum crude fibre content. Virus infection caused marked inhibition of chlorophyll. Studies on 19 varieties of okra was conducted to record the Physiological response of yellow vein mosaic virus-infected okra.
