Abstract: A field experiment was carried out at KRC college of Horticulture, Arabhavi (Karnataka) during 2014-15 to study influence of pruning and different plant bio regulators in relation to physical characters of fruit, yield and cost economics of guava cv. Sardar. Different crop regulation practices like Pruning (P2) and five bio regulators namely NAA 250ppm (T2), Urea 15% (T3), Ethrel 500ppm (T4) and CCC 50ppm (T5) were used at different concentrations, contributed favourable effects on fruit character, yield and B:C ratio. The maximum fruit length (7.13cm) and fruit weight (160.2g) were recorded in combination of pruning and ethrel treatment (P2T4). Fruit diameter (6.78cm) found maximum in combination of pruning and urea treatment (P2T3), higher fruit volume (165cc) was recorded in combination of pruning and cycocel treatment (P2T5). Less no. of seeds (180.75), less seed weight (2.91g) and where as maximum pulp weight (139.44g), pulp to seed ratio (48.76), yield (1.92 t/ha) and there by higher B:C ratio (1.71) were recorded in pruned plants with 250 ppm NAA treatment over control (P1T1).
