Metabolic adaptations under low moisture stress and salinity, and potential of growth regulators and microbes in improving tolerance in papaya (Carica papaya L)



  • Identifying morpho-physiological and anatomical traits imparting tolerance to low soil moisture stress and salinity in papaya cultivars
  • Investigations on cellular metabolites under low soil moisture stress and salinity
  • Studies on interactions of mycorrhizal fungi and growth regulators with physiological processes and cellular metabolites under abiotic stresses and management of stresses by mycorrhizal fungi and growth regulators

  • Morpho-physiological parameters and phytohormonal levels showed variations in the water stress tolerance among papaya cultivars. 
  • The cultivars exhibiting higher leaf water potential, specific leaf mass, leaf ABA and root cytokinins under stress maintained stable growth and had root:shoot dry mass ratio.
