Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to study the changes in the nutrient composition in guava leaves after pruning and application of fertilizers. The maximum Nitrogen percentage was found in P3 (40cm) pruning in both years while P1 (0cm) unpruned plant recorded the lowest. The pruning intensity did not have any significant effect on Phosphorus content. Similarly, the highest Potassium percentage was found in P3 (40cm) pruning in both years while P1 (0cm) unpruned plant recorded the lowest. The significant difference was also observed for N, P and K content due to different fertilizers levels. The highest N, P and K percentage was estimated in leaves under F6 [5 kg FYM + 2 kg VC + 75% RDF {225:150:150g NPK} + Azotobactor 150gm + PSB 100gm / Plant] and minimum N and K percentage was found in F4, whereas, F1 Check (5 kg FYM+2kg VC/ Plant) had the lowest phosphorus content. The interaction effect due to pruning intensity and fertilizers was found to be significant for nutrient like N and K, whereas, P (%) showed non-significant. Leaf nitrogen and Potassium (%) content increased with the increase in severity of pruning, whereas, leaf Phosphorus content was found to be Non-significant.
