I am new to the forum and have just joined. Have been reading this forum for quite some time and thought should join and be a member of the forum to gain some knowledge.
I have around 4 acres of land in Poladpur Raigad, Maharashtra. Currently nothing is grown there and there are some neem trees there. I wanted to know if it is possible to grow Papaya there. We have red soil there.
I found that government nurseries in Raigad do not have Papaya. Was wondering is it because it is just not grown yet by anyone or is it because it is not suitable for this region. I found lot of people in Kerala doing Papaya cultivation so not sure why it can’t be done in Konkan belt.
Any help from experts here will be helpful.
