Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Studies on macro and micro nutrient status in leaf tissue of pomegranate (Punica granatum.) orchards of Jalna district” was carried on 2016-2017. For this purpose leaf sampling was done from the twigs of current season growth at 8th leaf from the apex in April 2016 with 60 leaves sample. The results indicated that leaf N, P and K concentration of pomegranate orchards were varied from 1.61 to 3.39, 0.04 to 1.25 and 1.62 to 9.98 percent with average values of 2.27, 0.29 and 4.92 percent, respectively. It showed high content of nitrogen and potassium and low phosphorus concentration in pomegranate leaves. The leaf Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu concentration of pomegranate orchards varied from 153 to 282, 51.7 to 86.0, 6.19 to 24.80 and 7.52 to 37.00 mg kg-1 with mean values of 211.82, 69.41, 14.43 and 18.68 mg kg-1, respectively. It showed Zn and Cu deficiency, respectively. However, leaf Fe and Mn were found to be sufficient in pomegranate leaves. The leaf nitrogen and potassium were found in sufficient limit while, phosphors was deficient in pomegranate leaf. The leaf micronutrient viz., zinc, copper were found to be deficient in leaves even as, leaf iron and manganese were sufficient in pomegranate leave.
