Dear Sri AG Nair , Conbratulations for your pomegranite plantation and farming.
As regards to your plantation of Redlady Papaya… They are produced and seeds are supplied by Known you seed co of Taiwan. In their web site, a detailed farming write up is existing. ( knownyou.co.in ) pl go through sir.
With my experience i suggest you, 1. take more care during nursery and see that succing pest will be at zero level.2. Use as much as organic fertilisers,like FYM both cows/buffellows, goats and sheeps, neem cake, vermi compost, jatropha cake ,also bio pesticides like trichderma viride/horizonum,Psuedomonos,Paceilomyces,vam etc and plant the plants at required distances. Pl be careful and cautious about virus problem in papaya crop.
