Author(s): Kishore Kumar Das, GSK Swamy, Shivaningapp Kumbar and PK Yadav

Abstract: A field experiment was carried out to know the response of soil application of diatomaceous earth as a source of silicon on crop duration and yield of guava cv. Sardar at Kittur Rani Chennamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi, Karnataka India. The results indicated that the application of silica heaving the significant response of different treatments. With respect to total crop duration, treatment heaving RDF + 3 kg/plant of DE has took less number of days (21.73 days), while delayed harvesting was noticed in the treatment control. Maximum total number of flowers and yield per hectare (14.53 t/ha) was recorded in RDF + 3 kg/plant of DE while minimum total number of flowers and yield per hectare was recorded in Absolute control.
