How to Irrigate Guava Trees

  • During winter season, irrigation is provided at an interval of 20-25 days
  • During summer months it is provided at an interval of 10-15 days by the ring method.
  • Drip irrigation has proved to be very beneficial for guava.
  • About 60% of the water used for irrigation is saved.  
  • Besides substantial increase in size and number of fruits is observed.
  • Guavas prefer regular deep root watering, allow the soil to dry out somewhat between waterings.
  • Provide regular water during the growing season, and reduce watering during the winter.
  • Apply water at the base of the tree, avoiding its foliage getting wet to prevent fungal disease.
  • The older branches of the guava tree produce larger size guava fruit.
