Abstract:

Papaya (Carica papaya. L), gained momentum as a commercially and industrially important fruit crop in India.  The demand for the fruits in the market is steadily increasing due to the awareness among public about its health benefits.  India, though the world’s largest producer of papaya, its cultivation is challenged by various factors such as Papaya Ring Spot Virus, Papaya mealy bug, root rot incidence, variations in seed propagation, malformation of fruits and lack of fruit set due to weather fluctuations, poor shelf life of fruits etc. To combat these problems, several technologies have been standardized like vegetative propagation through grafting, protocol for tissue cultured plants, balanced fertilizer application, integrated water and nutrient management practices, use of bio-fertilizers and bio control agents, adoption of precision farming practices viz., raised bed cultivation, fertigation, plastic mulching, micro nutrient foliar spray, besides management practices for Papaya Ring Spot Virus disease and nematodes which are  reviewed in this paper.
