Abstract:

Effect of spacing and pruning on flowering behavior of guava was studied at Horticulture research block, CCS Haryana Agricultural University Hisar in both rainy and winter season during the year 2016-17. Experiment was laid out with nine different spacings i.e. 6×2 m, 6×3 m, 6× 4 m, 6×5 m, 5×2 m, 5× 3 m, 5× 4 m, 5× 5 m and 6×6 m and two pruning levels viz. no pruning and 50% shoot pruning of last season growth. Shortest duration of flowering was found with pruned and widest (6×6 m) spacings. Date of full bloom varied from 21st May 2016 to 28th May 2016 for rainy season crop and 14th Aug 2016 to 19th Aug 2016 for winter crop. Flower bud density found more in widest (6×6 m) spacing of upper canopy part of unpruned tree during rainy season, whereas maximum flower bud density was recorded in widest spacing of upper canopy part of pruned trees.
