    • Abstract


      Male plants ofCarica papaya L were induced to bear female flowers and yield a good fruit crop by the application of ethrel and chlorflurenol at various concentrations. During conversion of male flowers into female flowers, some intersexual flowers with transition were observed. The female flowers produced by ethrel were similar to the control female flowers whereas those produced by chlorflurenol were abnormal.
