An experiment was conducted during 2014-15 at Raipur, India to find out the effect of chemical fertilizers, organics manure and biofertilizers on growth and yield of mrig bahar guava (Psidium guajava L.). The results revealed that the tree height (4.91m), north-south spread (6.93 m), east-west spread (6.84 m), number of flowers/m2 (15.14), number of fruits/m2 (12.17), number of fruits tree-1 (227.32) and fruit yield (48.23 kg tree-1) were significantly influenced and recorded maximum with the application of 75% recommended dose of fertilizers (RDF) + cowdung slurry @ 10 litre tree-1 + Azospirillum 100 g tree-1 + PSB 100 g tree- 1 (T6). The minimum number of seeds per fruit (226.45) and seed weight per fruit (5.47g) was also recorded with the treatment T6 and it was maximum with the control. Treatment having 75% RDF + 25% NPK tree-1 blended with cowdung slurry @ 10 litre tree-1 (T4) proved the next best treatment, However, lowest values for all the parameters were recorded under the control.
