which type of irrigation method is suitable for papaya ?kindly help me.
Drip irrigation is suitable.
Reason: Papaya cannot take more water and dont tolerate less water. You will have good control on size of the fruit and yield if you provide drip irrigation.
Suggestion is for a plantation of commercial scale. Not for stand alone trees.
Thanks for your suggestions, do you know any one growing papaya near Bangalore or Tumkur.
I have a plan to visit any farm and learn from them.
Yes I do Have contacts. Give me some time. I will send you PM.
let me also know, what are the multicrops we can grow between papaya.
Inter cropping is not a recommended practice as I know. However, you may try crops like URID, Moong etc before the flowering starts in papaya. (that is only within about 3-4 months after planting papaya)
If grown in HD format, you will not have space between papaya plants when the plants grow and yield starts.
