Abstract: In order to study the secondary nutrients in soil and leaf of Alphonso mango orchards from Ratnagiri and Devgad and their relationship with yield, two orchards from Ratnagiri tahasil viz. Warwade-1 and Warwade-2 and two from Devgadtahasil viz. Padel and Rameshwar were selected. The analysis of the available soil nutrients showed to be low in Ca, Mg and low to optimum in S While, the concentration of nutrients in leaf to be optimum to high in Ca and Mg and optimum in S. The overall nutrient contents of soil and leaf were gradually decreased up to harvest at all locations with few exceptions. In case of yield, the highest yield was observed at Warwade-2 while, lowest at Rameshwar amongst all locations. The exchangeable Ca and Mg insoil while, nutrient contents in leaf viz. Ca, Mg and S, were significantly correlated with yield.
