Abstract: The experiment reported in this paper was conducted to observe the effects of water and nitrogen, differentially applied, on (1) leaf composition, (2) growth of the plants, (3) concentration of sugar in the fruits, (4) yield, and (5) sex expression of the plants. Papaya plants were subjected to differential applications of water and nitrogen under field conditions. Moisture, total sugars, nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium determinations were made on selected index tissues.
