    Author(s): Chandra KKChandra KK

    Experiment was conducted to study the effects of Pseudomonas straita and chemical fertilizers on growth, fruit yield and leaf mosaic virus in Carica papaya var. Sinta F1. The experiment comprised four treatments namely Farmers practices (T0- NP (Nitrogen: Phophorus) 100:50+10 kg FYM (Farm Yard Manure)/plant/year), Phosphorus Solubilizing Bacteria (T1- Pseudomonas straita @20 g culture /plant/year), Recommended fertilizer dose (T2- NPK 300:300:300+FYM 10 kg/plant/year), T3- Pseudomonas straita + NPK (300:300:300NPK+FYM 10 kg + P. straita 20 g /plant/year) in seven replications. The planting density was 2500 ha-1 (2 m × 2 m). The treatment effects found significant (p<0.05) for plant height, leaf number, leaf length, fruit weight, fruit volume and fruit yield while, nonsignificant for trunk girth, inter nodal length and pulp thickness. The treatment T3 plants occurred growth an.. View More»
