Field experiments were conducted to test the feasibility of using different caging material viz. perforated (3%) polyethylene sheet (200gauge), nylon net (1.2mm), butter paper bag including control (open pollination) for true to type seed production in Local selection-1 genotypes of papaya during summer and rainy seasons. Significantly Less number of flower drop was observed in open pollination (0.80) during rainy months. Maximum fruit set (98.80%), fruit retention (96.80%), Average fruit weight (0.872kg) and number of seeds per fruit (438.80) was recorded in open pollination during rainy months when compared to summer and differed significantly with other treatments. Nylon net performs better for more number of seed productions (419.20) in rainy season when compared to summer (345.20) revealing better potential for higher seed production in Papaya (Carica papaya L).
