Abstract: A field study was conducted in guava to standardize the planting density and its effect on growth parameters such as scion girth, plant height, and growth pattern such as east – west spread, north – south spread, canopy volume and fruit yield in Allahabad Safeda variety. The grafted plants were planted during June 1988 and the yield data were recorded from 1992 to 1998. The studies were conducted in 4 replications comprising 5 planting densities namely 6x3m, 6x4m, 6x6m, 8x4, 8x3m accommodating 555, 416, 277, 312 and 416 plants/ha. The results indicated that the scion girth was significantly higher in widely spaced planting density (8x4 or 8x3). There were no significant differences between treatment means for plant height. The plant spread across East-West directions was significant in 8x3m spacing. The fruit yield in Mrig bahar was significantly higher compared to Hasth bahar in terms of total fruit numbers and weight. The total fruit yield was the highest in 6x3m where the planting density was 100% more than the recommended package. Thus from this study it was concluded that high density planting of guava at 555 plants/ha is suitable for Coorg conditions to obtain optimum yield.
