The present study confirms the nutrients status in four grape growing regions of Maharashtra was worked out in the investigation. The available nutrient content was divided in three groups, low, optimum and high. It was revealed from the study that most of the soils are alkaline in reaction in all the four regions. The highest concentration of nitrogen was recorded in Pune region and the lowest average N content was recorded in Nashik region. The K content of the vineyards from Solapur and Sangli region was recorded above the optimum level. The highest average Calcium concentration was found in Sangli region. However, the vineyards from Pune, Solapur and Sangali regions recorded the Ca concentration above the optimum level. The average concentration of Magnesium in petiole at bloom time was found slightly less than the optimum level in all four main grape growing regions. The concentration of Fe in all the regions was found to be at higher level. The concentration of Mn, Zn also Cu were found to be more than optimum in most of the vineyards from all the four regions. Toxicity of sodium was noticed in Pune Solapur and Sangli region. The problem of high concentration of sodium in petiole was noticed in Sangli (90.11%), followed by Solapur (89.68%), and Pune (85.95%). However, in Nashik region most of the vine yards were found to be safe from sodium toxicity.
