Abstract: The present investigation was carried out to study the uptake of major nutrients in soybean growing soils of Dharwad taluk during 2015-16 kharif season. For this purpose 51 representative soybean growing soils of Dharwad taluk were selected. The study revealed that major nutrient uptake in below average yield category ranged from 50.15 to 69.82 with a mean value of 64.24, 12.28 to 17.35 with a mean value of 14.87, 41.69 to 54.96 with a mean value of 50.35 and 7.45 to 10.12 with a mean value of 9.21 kg ha-1 of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K) and sulphur (S) respectively. The major nutrient uptake in above average yield category ranged from 72.28 to 81.31 with a mean value of 76.21, 16.66 to 18.55 with a mean value of 17.64, 60.63 to 70.15 with a mean value of 65.82 and 10.34 to 13.52 with a mean value of 11.86 kg ha-1 of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur respectively. Positive and significant correlation relationship between nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur uptake and grain yield was recorded with the correlation values of 0.943**, 0.717**, 0.981** and 0.986** respectively
