Papaya seed production under controlled pollination and isolation


Papaya seed production under controlled pollination and isolation



Seed Research 23(2): 98-101



In experiments in Bihar, seed yields of pawpaw Pusa Dwarf were higher from isolation plots at Bhairwar (579.18 kg/ha) than under controlled pollination conditions at Pusa (361.78 kg/ha). The cost of seed production per unit weight from isolation plots (Rs 82.65/kg) was lower than under controlled pollination (Rs 190/kg). It is suggested that foundation seed production on a commercial scale may be conducted on isolation fields to meet the increasing demands for pawpaw seed in India.
