Abstract:
Fifteen grape orchards of district Ganderbal, Jammu and Kashmir with uniform age and vigour were selected and surveyed (simple random survey) for the purpose of collection of petiole samples. Petiole nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium and sulphur content varied statistically from 1.71 to 1.87, 0.17 to 0.20, 1.60 to 1.67, 1.04 to 1.30, 0.19 to 0.29 and 0.14 to 0.18 per cent with an average value of 1.79, 0.18, 1.64, 1.17, 0.24 and 0.16 per cent, respectively. Iron, manganese, zinc, copper, boron and molybdenum content of vineyards varied statistically from 131.88 to 139.19, 35.70 to 40.90, 29.68 to 37.00, 11.40 to 12.73, 22.95 to 26.07 and 0.33 to 0.42 ppm with mean values of 135.53, 38.30, 33.34, 12.06, 24.51 and 0.37 ppm, respectively. Petiole analysis revealed that 20, 33, 67, 33, 53 and13 per cent, vineyards were low in phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, zinc, boron and molybdenum, contents, respectively whereas, no deficiency of nitrogen, potassium, sulphur, iron, manganese and copper was observed in grape orchards of Jammu and Kashmir.
