A field experiment was carried out at main experiment Station, Department of fruit Science, Acharya Narendra Deva University of Agriculture & Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya, (U.P) during the year 2019 and 2020. The experiment was conducted in a Randomized block design (Factorial) with three replications. The treatment combination comprise of 3 factors viz. 3 pruning time, 2 pruning intensity and 2 bagging levels. Based on the experimental results it can be concluded that result obtained from the present investigation, among different pruning time, the 05th June pruning was found most effective in improving chemical parameters of guava fruit. Chemical attributes were improved with 60 per cent pruning of annual shoot growth. The vegetative bud growth, fruit setting, fruit growth and ripening process delayed with 60 per cent pruning intensity results in higher production of quality fruits. T.S.S, Vitamin C and Sugars were enhanced with bagging 20 days after fruit set. The bagging 20 days after fruit set was effective for improving chemical characters of guava fruits. Pruning of guava trees in the first week of June with 60 per cent pruning intensity of annual shoot growth and bagging 20 days after fruit set can be recommended to obtain higher yield with quality fruit and maximum return.
