Abstract: A filed experiment was conducted during 2012 and 2013 at the Regional Horticultural Research Station and Krishi Vigyan Kendra of Navsari Agricultural University, Navsari, to determine the effect of integrated nutrient management (INM) with organic and inorganic fertilizers and their different combination for papaya. The study of two year indicated that the application of 25 % RDN through bio compost + 25 % RDN through castor cake + 50 % RDN through inorganic fertilizer gave higher values of yield characters viz., number of fruit (28.57), average weight of fruit (1.062 kg), yield per plant (30.24 kg), yield per hectare (83.99 t), fruit diameter (24.87 cm), fruit volume (900.23 ml) and minimum fruit cavity index (24.13 %) and initiation of flowering (105.17 day). This treatment also improve the quality characters like, fruit firmness (7.38 Kg/cm2), shelf life (7.54 days), total soluble solid (8.12 %), total sugar (9.80 %), reducing sugar(8.45 %) and vit.-C (23.90 mg/100g pulp) and also lowering physiological loss in weight (11.20 %) and titrable acidity (0.016 %).
