Abstract: The present investigations on “Assessment of irrigation water quality for grape gardens in Western Maharashtra” were carried at Division of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, College of Agriculture, Pune and Maharashtra Draksh Bagayatdar Sangh (M.R.D.B.S.), Manjri, Pune during 2013-14 . The study consist of comparison in the quality of irrigation water and thereby accumulation of salts in soil during the year 2007-08 to that of 2013-14 in four grape growing regions viz; Pune, Nashik, Sangli and Solapur of Western Maharashtra. The region wise irrigation water samples either from well, bore well or canal and soil samples were collected. Irrigation water quality data of 505 samples and 1650 soil samples data of 2007-08 were considered as baseline in this study. The irrigation water and soil samples were collected from Pune 104 and 391, Nashik 34 and 40, Sangli 51 and 217 and Solapur 123 and 244 respectively in the year 2013-14. The irrigation water samples were analyzed for pH, electrical conductivity, cation and anion concentration and boron while soil samples were analysed for fertility status and salt accumulation. The irrigation water quality parameters like EC, SAR and RSC were higher in the year 2013-14 as compare to 2007-08 in Sangli region. The pH and SO42- concentration in irrigation water were found higher in Solapur region during 2013-14 as compared to 2007-08. In case of potassium and boron concentration in irrigation water were higher in Pune region in 2013-14 as compared to 2007-08. The nitrate nitrogen, Mg:Ca ratio and Kelley’s ratio of irrigation water in the year 2013-14 were higher as compare to the year 2007-08 in Nashik region during 2013-14 as compared to 2013-14. The salt accumulation in soils of grape gardens of Sangli region was higher in 2013-14 than 2007-08. Soil fertility parameters like EC, organic carbon, available nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur and DTPA extractable Fe and Zn content were higher in Pune region. The soil pH, Cl- concentration and DTPA Cu were higher in Sangli region however soil CaCO3 and DTPA Mn content in soil were higher in Solapur region during 2013-14 as compared to 2007-08.
