The effect of planting geometry and nutrition on growth and flowering of seed guar cultivars viz., HG 365 and HG 563 was analysed under Mahanandi conditions. The fresh and dry weights of different plant parts were significantly the highest in the variety HG 365 planted at a spacing of 30 cm x 10 cm. Dry weight of whole plant was found superior at 30 cm x 20 cm spacing with fertilizer dose of 45N: 60P: 60K: 30S kg per ha. The fresh and dry weight of pod per plant also exhibited significant superiority in this treatment combination. The per plant seed yield was highest at the spacing of 30 cm x 20 cm whereas per plot yield was highest at 30 cm x 10 cm.

Key words: Dry weight, Fresh weight nutrition, Spacing, Seed guar.
