The nutritional status of healthy and PRSV infected papaya plants treated with different biotic inducers showed significant difference among the treatments. Nitrogen content was found significantly increased in PRSV infected papaya plants, while phosphorus and potassium were decreased compared to the healthy and treated non PRSV infected plants. Higher level of micronutrients i.e., magnesium, iron, boron, zinc and manganese were observed in healthy untreated and plants sprayed with different biotic defense inducers at 15 and 45 DAS. Whereas, in PRSV infected untreated and infected treated plants, showed reduced micronutrient content.
