An experiment was carried out to study the “Response of pruning time and intensity on growth and yield of guava (psidium guajava L.) Cv. Shweta” in the year 2018-2019. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design in a factorial arrangement having two factors on time of pruning and pruning intensity.The combination of three levels of 1st May (M1), 1st June (M2) and 1st July (M3) are done and four level of pruning intensity are done at 0% pruning (P0), 25% pruning (P25), 50% pruning (P50) and 75% pruning (P75) are done at a time comprising twelve treatment combination. Results reveal that the maximum new shoots per pruned branch, number of flowers per tree, per cent fruit set, fruit retention, number of fruits per tree and fruit yield (kg per tree)was recorded with50% pruning (P50) and Length of new shoots (cm) was recorded with 75% pruning (P75).The pruning time is also influenced with increasing trend on Length of new shoots, number of flowers per tree, fruit retention, number of fruit per tree and fruit yield (kg per tree)was recorded maximum with 1st May (M1), maximum number of new shoots per pruned branch recorded under 1st June (M2) and maximum per cent fruit set under 1st July (M3). However, the50% pruning of shoot in the month of May can be recommended to obtained higher yield and quality production of guava fruit in the Indo-gangetic plains of eastern Uttar Pradesh.
