Abstract:

Globally, India is bestowed with diverse agro-climate conditions which favour the production of a variety of fruit crops from arid, semi-arid, tropical, sub-tropical and temperate region. At present India is the second largest producer of fruits in the world after China. The need of hour is sustainable secure and affordable way to feed the entire population with nutritious food. Hence it is essential to incorporate high tech practices in our day to day cultivation practices that are potential enough to increase both quantity as well as quality of the produce. Even though, India ranks second in fruits production next to China, there is scope for increasing our productivity. In this review we have discussed an important hi – tech practices in guava for the enhancement of productivity. The novel techniques in guava practices viz., mulching, meadow orcharding, high density planting, pruning, flower induction, fruiting, fertilization, fertigation, crop regulation, foliar nutrition and crop regulation practices and using salinity tolerant rootstock improves the production, productivity and quality.
