A field experiment was conducted in the guava orchard of a progressive farmer, Barehi, Allahabad Road, Rewa (M.P.) during 2015 and 2016 to study the integrated nutrient management (INM) on growth, yield and economics of guava. The INM treatment T13 (50% NPK (RDF) + 25 kg FYM + 5 kg vermicompost /tree gave maximum plant and canopy height, spread (E-W and N-S), plant girth, leaf length and width and tree volume. This was closely followed by T7 [100% NPK + Zn (0.5%) + B (0.2%)] + Mn (1%) foliar spray twice to organic mulching 10 cm thick) and then T4 (100% NPK + organic mulching). Maximum number of fruits per tree, fruit weight and yield per tree were recorded under the same treatment T13, followed by T7 and then T4. All the treatments were significantly superior to control. The treatment T13 recorded maximum fruit yield (91.8 q/ha), as well as net income up to Rs.172520/ha with B: C ratio 4.03. This was equally followed by T7 and T9 (88.6 to 89.4 q/ha and Rs.165020.00 and Rs.169220.00/ha).
