*Corresponding Author's E-mail :


In Guava orchard of raifed condition of Bundelkhand, artificial irrigation is neither practical nor economical due to non availability of irrigation facility and harvesting of rain water through in-situ conservation measures is only viable alternative as adopting vegetative barrier, staggered trench, during July, 2014-February, 2015 produced significantly higher fruit yield in respect of quality fruit weight, fruit size, TSS and Vitamin C in winter (Mrig Bahar) with Allahabad Safeda, Shweta and Lalit cultivars. In-situ moisture conservation measures could sustain moisture availability for longer duration after monsoon that has been helpful for vegetative growth, flowering and fruiting of guava. Staggered trench and vegetative barrier as a moisture conservation measure gave fruitful results for production as well as quality fruit.
