ABSTRACT: The propagation of the guava (Psidium guajava L.) may be carried out with seeds, layering, grafting or budding, cuttings (roots or shoots) or by micropropagation. The guava propagation by seeds is carried out for the growing rootstocks and for growing plants to be detected in the early stages of the cultivation of guava trees. The asexual methods for propagation are used to clone chosen genotypes of breeding methods and to establish commercial fruit orchards, as they provide all the distinctiveness of each cultivar. This review article deals with various methods used in the propagation of guava, which are commercially adopted, and the recent progress and trends related to it. The various propagation techniques are available, but the levels of adoption are quite different in guava producing areas.
