Effect of NPK fertilization on growth and yield of guava under high density planting
Author(s): MN Baviskar, SG Bharad and PK Nagre
Abstract: A field experiment was conducted during 2012-13 and 2013-14 to study the effect of different levels of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium individually and in combinations on growth and yield parameters of young bearing guava grown under high density planting system. Experimental findings revealed that, plant growth was significantly influenced by applied nutrients. Plant height, plant spread, plant volume, length of shoot, number of leaves, leaf area and chlorophyll content showed significant improvement with the application of 300 g nitrogen, 150 g phosphorus and 150 g potassium per plant during both the years of experimentation. Second order interactions also influenced the growth characters of guava and it was observed that combination of 300 g N + 150 g P2O5 + 150 g K2O per plant recorded maximum plant growth. Yield attributing characters viz., number of flowers per shoot, fruit set, fruit drop, fruit weight were significantly influenced by the increasing levels of applied nutrients. The results obtained on pooled basis reveals that treatment consisting 300 g N + 150 g P2O5 + 150 g K2O per plant was noteworthy in increasing yield parameters of guava over all other combinations and control.
