Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the effect of different organic manures on fruit quality parameters of papaya cv. Arka Prabhat. The study revealed that among the organic manures applied the maximum pulp thickness (2.84 cm), fruit firmness (11.53 Kg cm-2), ascorbic acid content (67.33 mg 100g-1) and total soluble solids (13.32 oBrix) was observed with application of sheep manure 100% RDN. The maximum titrable acidity (0.157%) was observed with application of FYM 50% RDN + vermicompost 50% RDN. The maximum reducing sugars (7.35%) and total sugars (8.92%) was recorded in fruits of plants applied with neem cake 100% RDN. The non-reducing sugars (1.79%) were maximum in vermicompost 100% which was on par with neem cake 100% RDN. The lycopene content of fruits was maximum (5.49 mg 100 g-1) in plants applied with FYM 50% RDN + vermicompost 50% RDN and carotenoid content (2.53 mg 100 g-1) of fruits was recorded in FYM 100% RDN applied treatment.
