Experiment on effects of foliar application of urea and zinc with nine treatments combination on guava was carried out during 2012-13 at Fruit Research Station at Junagadh. The results showed that the 1.5% urea treatment gave significantly the maximum number of fruit retention (63.17%), fruit weight (155.47g), highest number of fruits per plant (511.07) and yield of fruits (22095kg/ha) were noted in treatment (1.5% Urea). With respect to effect of zinc sulphate the data indicated that the, fruit retention (62.86%), fruit weight (153.89g), highest number of fruits per plant (489.69) and yield of fruits (20984kg/ha) were recorded in treatment Z3 (0.6% ZnSO4). It was found that application of 1.5% urea and Z3 (0.6% ZnSO4) prove superior among tested dose of both the urea and zinc under Junagadh conditions.
