Weeds are considered major obstacle in agricultural production systems particularly in fruit crops. Guava orchards suffer more from weeds as its most of the plant’s nutrient-absorbing roots are close to the ground surface and in presence of weeds these roots are unable to absorb proper nutrient as weeds compete for the nutrients. Moreover, weeds also act as a host for different insect pests and diseases. Therefore, it is important to keep guava orchard especially the canopy area free from weeds so that the fertilizers added to the soil are readily available to the plants.
