STUDY OF PRUNING TECHNIQUE WITH DIFFERENT LEVEL OF FERTILIZERS IN GUAVA (PSIDIUM GUAJAVA L.) CV. SARDARP.S. Bagul, G. M. Waghmare and L.A. Girase
The field experiment was laid out at fruit research station, Aurangabad, Maharashtra (India) in Randomized Block Design (RBD) replicated thrice with pruning was done at 30 cm, 60 cm, 90 cm and control of no pruning along with soil application of N: P2O5: K2O at different levels will be given as nine treatments. The pruning was done in 1st week of April, 2019 observations were made on morphological Parameters. The results of the investigation revealed that the growth characters were significantly influenced by different pruning levels and fertilizer treatments. Among the different treatments, T9 (Pruning of shoot at 90 cm with soil application of N: P2O5: K2O @ 1000: 400: 400g/plant) increased the tree height, tree spread, fresh weight of pruned branches and number of new shoots emerged from pruned branches and shoot length.
