A quarterly series featuring current issues on plant nutrition. Our weekly highlighted article is "WHAT'S IN A PHOSPHORUS FOOTPRINT?" by Dr. Tom Bruulsema.
This presentation will review the basics of Cl- nutrition in crop production with an emphasis on wheat, and outline conditions where response is likely.
During the upcoming Frontiers of Potassium Science conference (January 25-27), the link between potassium and plant health will be explored in depth.
Tomatoes require a relatively large amount of potassium (K) for adequate growth. Recently, scientists have detected declining K concentrations for soils in the Xinjiang region, and this is thought to be related to the amount of K removed from the field during the continual harvest of processing tomatoes as well as other crops. Falling soil K fertility is leading to a reduction in tomato yield and quality.
Activity books are now available for Grades K to 1 and 2 to 3!
During the upcoming Frontiers of Potassium Science Conference (January 2017), the global resource base of potash minerals will be reviewed, with a look at long-term sustainability
