Abstract:

An experiment was conducted aimed to find out suitable growth hormone and growing medium for seedling growth of papaya. Experiment was laid out in Factorial completely randomized design with four different levels of GA3 (0, 100, 200, and 300 ppm) and seven combinations [Garden Soil, Sand + Garden soil + FYM (1:1:1), Sand + Garden soil + Vermicompost (1:1:1), Sand + Garden soil + Cocopeat (1:1:1), Sand + Garden soil + FYM (1:1:2), Sand + Garden soil + Vermicompost (1:1:2) and Sand + Garden soil + Cocopeat (1:1:2)] of growing media at main research field, Department of Horticulture, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences Allahabad (U.P.) – 211007. Findings indicate that treatment GA3 @ 100 ppm in M4 (Sand : Garden soil : FYM; 1:1:2) had a significant effect on the vegetative growth, seedling size and its quality, The maximum net return (Rs. 3385.90) was obtained in treatment G1M4 (GA3 100 ppm and Sand : Garden soil : FYM; 1:1:2) and maximum benefit cost ratio (5.50) was received treatment in G0M4 (Control and Sand : Garden soil : FYM; 1:1:2).
