Abstract:

High density meadow orcharding and crop regulation has made an important breakthrough for optimization of the guava fruit production. The land rates are hiking day by day and there is need for early returns from the invested capital, so it became a worldwide trend to plant trees on a high planting density and to manipulate tree architecture by canopy management to control growth pattern, shape of the plant and increase the fruit production. In guava, three distinct flowering seasons were identified in different parts of India. Flowering occurs on the current season's growth, even though the crop is available around the year. The rainy crop is of inferior quality, infested with fruit flies and do not keep well, whereas the winter crop produces a better fruit quality, fetch a premium price and has a long shelf life. Hence rainy season crop is regulated to next winter season by pruning. Pruning at different timings have shown different effects on the growth, flowering and yield parameters of the crop. It’s essential to standardize the pruning time in order to get crop with higher returns.
