This experiment was conducted on the seeds of okra Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) in order to study the effect of soaking seeds for an hour in methyl sulfonate on the germination and concentrations of ethyl different growth of local okra seedlings grown in dishes using cotton, in a special laboratory in Aden in the summer season on 06/29/2021 to2021 / 18 / 07 CE.
The results obtained are as follows:
The response of local okra seeds soaked in different concentrations of ethyl methyl sulfonate showed the study indicators represented by (germination speed) the moral superiority achieved by the control treatment (soaking in water only) over the treatments with the highest concentrations of EMS represented by the following concentrations (0.07%, 0.08%, 0.09 % and 0.1%).
The treatments that were treated with a low concentration of EMS achieved significant superiority in the percentage of germination, represented by the two treatments EMS concentration (0.02% and 0.03%) over the following treatments (0.00%, 0.8%, 0.09 and 0.1%), while it did not reach the significant level with the rest of the other transactions.
EMS treatment achieved a concentration of (0.02%) moral superiority in the stalk length of okra seedlings over all other treatments.
EMS treatment showed a concentration of (0.03%) significantly superior to all treatments except for the treatment of concentration (0.02%) in the characteristics of root length and leaf area of okra seedlings.
