In Calvillo, Aguascalientes, guava is produced more than 100 years ago. In order to improve soil fertility, promote plant growth and improve fruit quality, during 2014-2016 the experiment was carried out. The fruit manure was prepared, manure tea and compost tea, each applied to the soil, foliage and soil and foliage plus a witness, each treatment was repeated 4 times and a completely randomized design was used, the experimental unit was a two-year-old tree of The "China" variety. Applications were made every eight days. Soil treatments caused significant differences (P < 0.05) in Da, MO and N. The P increased with the treatments applied to the soil and foliar and the K, Ca and Mg, were excessive. In the soil solution the TéCS increased by 3.5 mg/kg, N and Na at 16.45 mg/kg. In leaves the Na increased by 57.4 mg/kg and in fruit the treatments TéEF, TéCFS and AFF increased their size. It is concluded that liquid organic fertilizers are a good ecological alternative to improve soil fertility and guava nutrition.
