An experiment was conducted to study the effect of media pH on shoot proliferation of papaya using shoot tip and axillary bud as explant. The experiment was conducted in Completely Randomized Design with ten treatments and three replications. The aim of the experiment was to study the effect of media sucrose concentration on shoot proliferation while using shoot tip and axillary bud as explant. The different parameters taken for study were number of shoots per explant, length of shoot (cm) and culture response (%). The data stated that increasing the pH had a positive effect on these parameters upto some extent, but when pH was increased from 5.7, the different parameters showed a decreasing trend. The most suitable pH for shoot proliferation can be registered to be 5.7.

Keywords: pH, shoot tip, Axillary bud, Shoot proliferation, Culture response.
