The fruits must be harvested as soon as they mature. Adequate control measures are necessary to intensify the production of papaya. Such Papaya fruits are elongated and reduced in size. List of Diseases of the Papaya Plant & Fruit. The black spot of papaya is mainly caused by the fungus Asperisporium caricae, previously referred to as Cercospora caricae. disease affecting papaya. The affected fruits should be removing and destroyed. These patches enlarge rapidly and girdle the stem, causing rotting of the tissues, which then turn dark brown or black. Use of appropriate protective fungicides, for example, mancozeb or copper sulfate. With widespread infections, the recommendation is to remove all affected Papaya plants. Viral diseases, such as that caused by the Papaya ringspot virus (PRSV) are even more deadly. Usually papaya with black spots is a fairly minor problem but if the tree becomes heavily infected, the growth of the tree can be affected, hence fruit yields so treating papaya black spot before the disease progresses too far is of paramount importance. Fungal diseases are a major production problem for papayas which typically require frequent and large amounts of fungicides applied to orchards. The plant cant withstand its own weight and wind. Papaya ring spot virus (PRSV) of apaya pests and diseases. To avoid overwatering the papaya, water deeply when the top 1 inch of soil dries. Pawpaw (Carica papaya) and orange (Citrus spp.) Symptoms – The disease causes severe damage to plant leaves. Plant diseases comprise a major factor in the culture of papaya. INTRODUCTION Evaluation on incidence and alternative management of post-harvest fungal diseases of papaya fruit Dipping Papaya fruits in hot water at 48°C for 20 minutes reduces the incidence of the disease. If leaves are severely infected, and they turn brown and die. Bacteria survive in lesions and cankers. Papaya has culinary, medical, and industrial uses, but is cultivated for its edible fruit. These fungicides are used with or without hot water treatment after fruit harvest. 851_71 EFFECT OF COMBINATIONS OF BIO-PESTICIDES ON THE MANAGEMENT OF NEMATODES ON CARICA PAPAYA L. 851_72 MOLECULAR CHARACTERIZATION OF BEGOMOVIRUSES ASSOCIATED WITH PAPAYA LEAF CURL DISEASE IN INDIA, 851_73 INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT OF PAPAYA RINGSPOT VIRUS, 851_74 PAPAYA DISEASES IN BIHAR: AN OVERVIEW, 851_75 INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT OF PAPAYA RING SPOT VIRUS (PRSV) IN AGRO ECOLOGICAL CONDITIONS OF BIHAR, 851_76 AN INSIGHT INTO THE POST HARVEST HANDLING AND STORAGE OF PAPAYA (CARICA PAPAYA L.), 851_77 METABOLOMIC INVESTIGATION OF FRUIT FLESH GELLING OF PAPAYA FRUIT (CARICA PAPAYA L.

Water soaked patches appear on the stem near the ground level. The fungus survives in soil and enters through wounds in the plant stem. Then, spaying with Copper Oxychloride (3 g/liter of water) or Carbendazim (1 g/liter of water) or Thiophanate Methyl (1 g/liter of water) at 15 days interval effectively controls the disease. As soon as the powdery mildew disease symptoms are observed dusting Sulphur (30 g/10 liters of water) or spraying Calixin 75 EC (5 ml/10 liters of water) at 15 days interval helps to control the disease, Cercospora black spot of papaya pests and diseases. Dealing with black spot fungus in pawpaw / papaya. Papayas are subject to infection by many fungal diseases. The powdery mildew disease appears as on the foliage and pods. Insufficient water, disease, or attack by nematodes can all cause Papaya trees to wilt. The fruit has very thin skin and thus rough handling leads to heavy losses due to a number of rots caused by fungi and bacteria. Aphids can be mainly controlled by the application of Carbofuran (1 kg a.i./ha) in the nursery bed at the time of sowing seeds followed by 2 to 3 foliar sprays of Phosphamidon (0.05%) at an interval of 10 days starting from 15 to 20 days after sowing. Commercial papaya production has been hampered worldwide due to the high susceptibility of the crop to different fungal, viral, and bacterial diseases. Papaya is also known as pawpaw, is an important agricultural export. A disease of papaya that still causes significant yield losses is anthracnose. Though, its use is controversial. This disease control measures are seldom warranted, apart from general sanitary measures that are removal and destruction of disease crop debris. Lesions are seen on the stem at or just above soil level. that the disease level in transgenic plants was reduced to 35% of the disease level in non-transformed control plants. Papaya (Carica papaya L.), is susceptible to a range of fungal pathogens (Nishijima, 1994). Papaya requires regular fertilizer applications to meet the nutrient requirements for Papaya fruit production. Introduction to Papaya pests, diseases, and their control procedure. RANCHI, 851_60 INFLUENCE OF BIO-INOCULANTS ON NURSERY ESTABLISHMENT OF PAPAYA CV. Major symptoms persist on the ripe fruit as darker orange-brown rings. The disease is caused by the fungus Oidium caricae-papayae. They can be difficult to grow as they’re sensitive to drought, cold temperatures, high winds, and shade. Seeds are sown in small containers or nursery beds in sterilized soil. Management – Copper has been widely proposed as offering a level of control of this disease. A considerable reduction in the crop yield is observed. The disease enters orchards from infected papaya leaves in adjacent orchards. (5 cm) in diameter (Fig. Resulting fruit can have poor flavour, a tougher texture and are more likely to develop secondary fungal rots or black spot (a common fungal disease in southern Queensland). The infected plants show a marked reduction in plant growth. The plant-pathogenic fungus . The development of powdery mildew in papaya is promoted by high humidity (80-85%) and a temperature range of 24 to 26°C. But mildew does not rot papayas as does the blight disease.
