  • High density planting in guava cv. Sardar.

    High density planting of guava cv. Sardar (2m X 1m, 5000 plants/ha) with sugarcane trash mulching recorded highest fruit yield (37.80 t/ha) compared to recommended spacing (6.0m x 6.0 m, 277 plants/ ha) mulched with sugarcane leaf which yielded 2.165 tons / ha of fruit yield

  • Standardization of optimum level of pruning in guava cv. Sardar.

    Under high density planting (2m X 1m- 5000 plants/ha) of guava cv. Sardar in 5 years old plantation, pruning of current season growth shoots to 50 percent of its length during third week of April, August and December resulted in production of higher fruit yield of 38.70 t/ha.
