Monsoon Food is one of the largest grape export companies in Nashik district. There are 200 grape export farmers registered with the company. The company had organized Kisan Mela for the grape growers. Lecture on collection of soil sample, soil health management and nutrient management in grape has been planned on the occasion
Image: Nashik is leading district in grape production not in Maharashtra but in India. Majority of the farmers exports grape in Europe. Quality aspects in grape are more related with the nutrient management of the crop. Injudicious use of chemical fertilizers had made the soils less fertile and other problems like reduced FUE have been noticed. So, besides nutrient management, soil health management issue is crucial aspect in grape farming.
