Guava Farming (Amrud Ki kheti) can help farmers to multiple their incomes and improve their Standard of living. Currently Most of the farmers are in to traditional farming growing wheat, rice, maize etc due to which they are not able to earn enough to sustain their family.

Currently Farmers are earning 50000 -100000 per acre but Guava farming (Amrud ki kheti) can help them to earn 5-10 Lac rupees per acre. Initially for 2-3 years when plants are small farmers can do inter cropping and earn additional income. 

Kisan Buggy supports farmers to achieve their dreams of multiplying their income. Average land holding is decreasing day by day so it is a high time for farmers to adopt Guava farming ( Amrud ki kheti).

Income From Plantation:-

Plant Per Acre in high density plantation = 900 (6*8 spacing)

Fruits per plant throughout year = 30 kg ( less in high density)

Price for 1 Kg of guava = Rs 20

Income per plant = 20*30= 600

Income per Acre = 600* 900 = 5.4 lakh

Investment For 1 Acre :-

Spacing- 9*12 ft OR 10*10 ft

Number of plants per acre – 450+50 (For replacement) =500

Price of 1 Plant = Rs 150 ( Including Transportation of plants Till Farms + Supervisor For Plantation day + Technical assistance regarding usages of Fertilizer, Pesticide and irrigation schedule)

Total Investment for the plantation of 1 Acre = 150*500 =75000

Guava is the fourth most widely grown fruit crop in India. The area under guava is about 0.15 million hectare, producing 1.80 million tonnes of fruit. Bihar is the leading state in guava production followed by Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.

CLIMATE FOR CULTIVATION OF HIGH DENSITY GUAVA

Guava cultivation can be extended to varying agro-climatic regions owing to wider adaptability. Guava can be successfully cultivated both under tropical and subtropical conditions. It does well up to an altitude of 1,080-1,600 meters.

• It grows best with an annual rainfall below 150cm restricted between June-September. Places having more than 300cm rainfall are not suitable for guava. Under heavy rains and high relative humidity brings down the quality of fruits. Optimum temperature requirement is 23°C to28°C.

• The areas having a distinct winter season is considered best for increasing yield and improving quality. The humid conditions lead to a luxuriant growth of the trees and yield fruits of poor quality.

• It can be grown as rainfed as well as irrigated crop depending upon agro-climatic conditions. At the time of flowering and fruiting, it requires dry climate. High temperature and high-velocity winds during fruit development period lead to heavy fruit drop.

SOIL FOR CULTIVATION OF HIGH DENSITY GUAVA

Guava adapts well to a wide range of soils. Well-drained, light sandy loam to clay soils is good. Since it is a hardy fruit crop, it can be grown on alkaline soils wastelands etc. It is sensitive to waterlogged conditions. It tolerates a wide range of pH from 4.5 to 8.5.If the soils are having a pH of 7.5 and above there are more chances of getting guava wilt. Some varieties like Lucknow- 49 can be grown in saline soils.

High Density:

• High-Density orchard establishment is a long-term investment. Ploughing the area once or twice is suggested followed by two to three harrowings to pulverize and expose the soil completely. It can be best done during the dry season.

• The rectangular system of planting/layout is preferred as it facilitates orchard operations. Planting can be done anytime during the year provided irrigation facilities are available. If planting in December-January there is a chance of frost it causes severe damage. The pits of about 80 x 80 x 80 cm or 55 x 55 x 55 cm or 45 x 45 x 45 cm are dug as per layout plan.

• Then after 8 to 11days, each pit is filled with soil mixed with 15to 20kg organic manure and 550g of single superphosphate. Standard spacing for guava is 8x 8m, which accommodates 300 plants ha-1.It is important to shape the tree after planting. The spacing of the plants in the system depends on the fertility of the soil, availability of water, intensity of sunlight and wind exposure. As guava responds very well to pruning, the following plant densities have been recommended by Central Institute for Subtropical Horticulture, Lucknow for early, higher and quality guava production:

• 5 meter (row to row) x 1.5m (plant to plant) accommodating 2238 plants / ha.

• 5 meter (row to row) x 3.0m (plant to plant) accommodating 1120 plants / ha.

• 5 meter (row to row) x 3.0m(plant to plant) accommodating 561plants / ha.
