Effect of different bagging materials on fruit growth, yield and quality attributes of guava (Psidium guajava)

Author(s): Gaurav Singh, Vijay Bahadur and Saket Mishra
Abstract: The present experiment entitled “Effect of Fruit Bagging on the Yield and Quality Attributes of Guava (Psidium guajava) cv Allahabad Safeda” was conducted at Department of Horticulture, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Prayagraj during the session 2022 - 2024. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design, and the study consists of nine treatments with three replications including control. From the present investigation, it was concluded that bagging had significant effect on fruit characters in guava. The best treatment was T1 (15 days after fruit setting by Yellow cloth bag) which shows highest values in all the parameters viz fruit characters (fruit weight-149.91 g, polar diameter-6.90 cm, radial diameter-6.94cm, maximum maturity-88.32%, seed weight-5.45 g, & specific gravity-1.08), quality attributes maximum (TSS -12.85 0Brix, acidity- 0.47%, TSS/acid ratio-34.12, reducing sugar-5.09%) and minimum non-reducing sugar (1.98%) was obtained in yellow cloth bag (T1) (15 days) and maximum ascorbic acid (201.13 mg/100 g) was obtained in white perforated polythene bag (T4). Increased fruit yield and quality attributes might be due to the increased absorption of sunlight & favourable microclimate created due to bagging.
