Crop diversification through the agroforestry system is gaining significance and vegetable-based agroforestry is one of the means, but studies on the performance of vegetable crops under the agroforestry system are mere hence, the present research was carried out to study the performance of Okra under one-year-old pulpwood-based agroforestry. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications and six treatments. The Sowing of Okra under each pulpwood tree species is treated as a different treatment and in open areas is treated as a control treatment. Six treatments consist of Okra under open area (T0), Neolomarckia cadamba (T1), Dalbergia sissoo (T2), Acacia hybrid (T3), Gmelina arborea (T4), and Melia dubia (T5). The results revealed that the maximum growth and yield of Okra was observed in T0 and under pulpwood tree species highest growth was recorded under T4 and yield was decreased in the order of T5 > T2 > T3 > T1. The growth and yield performance of Okra were influenced by crown spread and light intensity of pulpwood tress species.
