Abstract

In many parts of the world papaya (Carica papaya L.) is prone to hypoxic stress due to soil flooding as a result of severe storms or hurricanes. Two experiments were conducted to test the effects of root zone hypoxia on physiology, recovery and survival of papaya and to determine if negative impacts of root hypoxia can be reduced by chemically enriching the… (More)
