Climatic requirement for Guava cultivation

Guava can be grown easily in region with tropical and subtropical climate. Although guava grow well in any kind of soil but they prefer sandy loam for better production.

A soil pH ranging from 6.5 to 8.5 is considered as ideal for higher production but alkaline soil are not suitable for higher fruit production.

Guava seeds germinates at temperature between 20 to 25°C. If there is high temperature at the time of fruit development, it can cause fruit drop.

Avoid waterlogging to obtain higher yield because water stagnation may results in root rot in the crop. Cultivate these fruit plants on the fertile & productive soil to obtain excellent fruit yield.
Deep, loamy & well drained soils are best for guava cultivation.

Guava can be cultivated easily in areas with 500-1000 mm rainfall. It can be grown at an altitude of more than 1500 meters above sea level. Quality of guava crop depends upon the fertility of soil.

For good fruit production, guava trees are not planted in areas with high wind velocity. If there is rain at the time of harvesting, the quality of the crop decreases.
