3. Pruning and pinching: Prune branches, overgrowing branches, and branches that are not capable of flowering to create the desired canopy and let the tree sprout many sprouts. When the sprouts grow into branches of about 8-10 pairs of leaves but have not yet produced buds, remove the tops, leaving only 3-4 pairs of leaves. The new sprouts will have flower buds.

The purpose of pruning branches is to create a canopy for the guava tree

From the time the tree is planted until it bears fruit, the main activity is to create the root system, form the main stem and the branch and leaf framework. However, if the tree is left to grow on its own, the branches will be uneven, with strong branches and weak branches. Weak branches are obscured so there are no fruits, while strong branches bear too many fruits and are exhausted, affecting quality and easily broken, especially when the wind is strong.

In addition, over time, some parts of old branches and leaves cover the young parts of branches and leaves, or branches that are infected with pests and diseases, reduce or no longer have the ability to produce fruit, and if not pruned, it will affect the health of the plant. tree yield and fruit quality.

Soak 3kg of ingredients with 3 liters of wine in a sealed box or container. During the soaking process, the barrel should only be kept in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. Soak for about 15-20 days to let the spicy essential oils of the ingredients absorb evenly with the wine and then filter the residue. Take about 50ml of the mixture, mix it with 1 liter of water and then spray evenly on the leaf surface.
