Abstract:

Pruning of guava cv. Allahabad Safeda under high density planting was done in the third week of June, 2013 with three pruning intensities i.e. leaving 10 cm, 20 cm and 30 cm from base of the shoot and retaining 30, 40 and 50 fruits per tree. Ten centimeter (10 cm) pruning intensity has advanced the vegetative bud appearance, maximum fruit diameter at harvest, average fruit weight and fruit yield. Pruning intensity of 30 cm has increased the number of vegetative buds per pruned shoot and number new shoots per pruned shoot along with early harvesting at colour turning stage. Thirty (30) fruit load per tree recorded the minimum number of days taken for harvesting at colour turning stage and maximum average fruit weight at harvest. Maximum fruit yield was noticed with 50 fruit load per tree. The interaction between pruning intensity and fruit load has shown that maximum fruit diameter was recorded with 10 cm pruning intensity with 30 fruit load per tree. However, minimum number of days was taken for harvesting at colour turning stage with 30 cm pruning intensity in combination with 30 fruit load. However, the quality of fruits in control and other treatments was also at par.
