Abstract

An experiment entitled effect of organic waste and growing media on seed germination and seedling growth of Papaya (Carica papaya L.) under net house condition was conducted in the Department of Fruit Science, College of Agriculture, Rewa year 2018-19. The treatments comprised combination of soil, vermicompost and cocopeat with varying levels of Cow dung, Cow dung Slurry and cow urine. Altogether, 21 treatments were applied in a factorial RBD with three repetitions. The seeds were sown in plug tray which is filled with respective media and treated with Cow dung, cow dung Slurry and cow urine. The results showed that the application of treatment T7 (cow urine for 24 hours) was found better higher germination percentage and length of seedling. While, T7 (cow urine for 24 hours) had enhanced plant growth by increasing seedling height, stem diameter, fresh weight of shoot and dry weight of shoot. In case of growing media that the application of treatment G3 (soil + cocopeat (2:1)) was found better higher germination percentage and length of seedling. While, G3 (soil + cocopeat (2:1)) had enhanced plant growth by increasing seedling height, stem diameter, fresh weight of shoot and dry weight of shoot. Interaction of T7G3 [cow urine for 24 hours and soil + cocopeat (2:1)] recorded non-significantly took the germination per cent also recorded significantly highest germination percentage.
