The aim of the study was to investigate the differences in leaf nutrient concentrations among the three cultivars (Misri, Double and Makhmali) of Sweet Cherry even though they are grown in same conditions. The other goal of the study was to determine variation in nutrient concentration of sweet cherry grown under different locations. Significant differences between cultivars were observed in nitrogen, calcium, Magnesium and Sulphur content in leaves, whereas phosphorus and potassium contents did not exhibit significant differences among the cultivars under study. The higher Nitrogen content was observed in Double and lowest in Makhmali cultivar. Higher content of Magnesium and Sulphur content was observed in Misri and lowest in Makhmali cultivar of sweet Cherry. All the macronutrients under study were significantly affected by the location of the orchards.
