Papaya is one of the evergreen plant in nature which have softwood, hollow stem and susceptible to wind. So, lodging in papaya plant is very common problem. Use of growth retardants in papaya fruit crop cultivation may be very beneficial in reducing height of papaya plant and prevents lodging in papaya. So, reduction in height of papaya may be benefited to papaya growers. Some growth retardants play an important role in sex reversal and flowering behavior of papaya plant. Reduction in the bearing height and internodal length is very effective in papaya by application of different plant growth regulators; specially growth retardants. Many researchers have worked on this aspect but still there is a need to find very specific retardant and a specific concentration. The finding of this research may help papaya growers to bring early flowering, male: female ratio, bearing height, internodal length, yield and quality of papaya.
