The study was conducted to determine the nutritional status of olive orchards in Nizip district, Gaziantep. For this purpose, 40 soil samples (0-30 cm and 30-60 cm depths) and 20 leaf samples were collected representing the orchards. Texture, CaCO3, pH, EC, organic matter, CEC, heavy metal, and macro-micro nutrients analysis was performed on the soil samples. Also, N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Na, Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn and B concentrations were determined in the leaf samples. According to the findings, the soils in the research area were found to have 77.5% clay, 12.5% silty clay loam and 10% clay loam texture respectively and the organic matter contents were determined to be insufficient. Furthermore, 17.5%, 50%, 7.5%, 97.5% and 100% of the soils were determined to be insufficient in P, Mg, Fe, Zn, and B contents, respectively. No evidence of contamination of heavy metals were found in the soils, while 25% of the leaf samples were found to be deficient in Mg, %100 in P, K and Ca, 95% in Cu, 5% in Zn and 65% in Mn. Overall results revealed that there were nutritional problems in the olive orchards of Nizip district, Gaziantep and there were no conscious plant nutrition programs based on soil and plant analysis in the olive orchards located in the region. For this reason, besides the necessity of increasing the fertilization studies with olive, producers should give necessary attention to soil and leaf analysis and they should be informed about nutritional status of the groves based on the scientific facts.
