The experiment was conducted to study the effect of farm yard manure and inorganic fertilizers applied alone or in combination on the productivity of Winter crop of guava. It has been observed that combined application of farmyard manure and NPK proved best to increase the fruit size, weight and total yield. Alone application of manure was found better than alone application of NPK. The effect of combined application of manure with NP, NK and PK was found in descending order to improve the production. Total soluble solids were not affected with any of the treatment and almost same level of TSS was noted in all cases. However, the yield was significantly increased when all the three major elements (NPK) were applied along with rottened farm yard manure.
