Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out to investigate morpho-physiological and productivity characteristics of various cultivars of Guava (Psidium guajava L.) under Western Uttar Pradesh conditions. Six guava cultivars viz., Lalit, Pusa Red Fleshed, Dhaval, Shweta, Lucknow-49 and Pant Prabhat showed wide range of variation with respect to plant growth and quality traits of fruits were evaluated during the winter season of the years 2020-21 and 2021-22. An experiment was carried out at, Horticultural Research Centre, College of Horticulture, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture & Technology, Modipuram, Meerut. An investigation was carried out to evaluate the morphological characters that is flowering percentage (92.35%), fruit setting percentage (75.67%), Number of fruits per plant (198.94), fruit weight (135.96 g), fruit length (6.67 cm) and width (6.36 cm). Guava variety Pant Prabhat was found to top the list in relation to all the morphological parameters and maximum values and proved significantly superior over both the varieties Shweta and Pant Prabhat followed by Pusa Red fleshed and Dhaval.
