thinking of cultivating taiwan 786 papai,

what should be spacing, fertigation & irrigation schedule thru drip(thru out life)?

Cultivating papaya is appreciatable but not in large scale at a time at starting. Start with small scale this year and go for large extent in next year. In Papaya, Red Lady 786 variety (Taiwan) is the best variety. It is producced by M/s. Knownyou company of Taiwan. Source the seeds from a reliable supplier and raise your own nursery. For your immediate reference, we are attaching a pdf file about detailed information on Papaya.

Red lady papaya -
Early, vigorous, productive, and tolerant to papaya ring spot virus. Plants begin to bear fruit at 60-80 cm height and have over 30 fruits per plant in each fruit-setting season. Fruits are short oblong on female plants and rather long-shaped on bisexual plants, weighing about 1.5-2 kg. Flesh is thick, red, with 13% sugar content, and aromatic.

Re: irrigation & fertigation schedule
   
dear sir,
i want to know following things after going thru info downloads for cultivation.

1) you have shown fertigationschedule up to 3 yrs. whether same plant is having life cycle of 3 yrs?

2) what is detail nutrient uptake for output of 1 ton? what are standard conditions expected such as ph, ec, organic matter(sendriya kerb)
, temp for highest uptake by plant?

3)what is max yield per plant in ideal conditions? time for same?

4) what is irrigation schedule,in rems of water required per day, per plant in liters at various stages?
being drought prone area this most imp factor)
regards,

HARISH HARDIKAR

Re: irrigation & fertigation schedule
   

1. The economic life of papaya plant is only 3 to 4 years. The yield varies widely according to variety, soil, climate and management of the orchard.

2. Papaya can grow on a variety of soils, yet the best soil is deep, rich, alluvial soils on the banks and deltas of rivers in India. The most important requirement for successful papaya cultivation is that the soil should have good drainage and be properly prepared before planting. Either natural high fertility or rapidly available nitrogen and an abundant supply of available nutrients supplied by commercial fertilizers are essential to obtain maximum yields in papaya.

The best performance has been observed on rich loams of uniform texture upto about 15 cm deep with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.0. The depth of the soil is not of much importance as it is a shallow rooted crop, but soil should be well drained. It is highly susceptible to water logging, even an 2.5 cm of water standing around the tree for few hours is likely to kill the plants. Do not select clayey soils having highly moisture retentivity as they easily get waterlogged.

3. The yield of 75-100 tonnes /ha. is obtained in a season from a papaya orchard depending on spacing and cultural practices.

4. Regular irrigation is an important aspect in papaya cultivation, which helps in growth, fruit development and high yield. Moisture stress inhibits the growth and also promotes male floral characters. In general, irrigation to grown-up plants is given once in 7-10 days in winter and 4-5 days in summer. The ring system of irrigation has been found very effective. This system helps in preventing collar rot as there is no direct contact between the water and the stem portion. Drip irrigation helps to save 50-60% water. Irrigation through the drip @6-8lit. /day/plant gives better yields.
