An experiment on the effect of crop regulation practices on Guava fruit crops was conducted during 2016-17 and 2017-18. The results revealed  maximumand statistically  higher yield (119.73 q/ha.), gross return (Rs 32925 per hectare) and Net return (Rs230529 per hectare)  under application of 800 PPM NAA plant growth regulator. Highest cost benefit ratio (1:3.33) was also recorded under the treatment of 800 ppm of NAA which was most economic and feasible practice of crop regulation in guava fruit crop.
