Abstract :

Abstract Papaya has gained commercial importance over the years because of its varied uses ; mainly for table purpose. The present experiment was undertaken to study the influence of major plant nutrients viz.,nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium on fruit quality of papaya. Three different levels of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (200, 250 and 300) gram per plant per year were applied to papaya plants at two month interval in six equal split doses. The trial was conducted in 33 confounded factorial RBD, confounding NPK in replication-1 and NP2K2 in replication-2. Results revealed that balanced nutrition had a positive effect on fruit quality characters of papaya
