Fall Potassium Applications: Consider Crop and (Soil) Characteristics

Required by all plant life, potassium (K) plays a major role in photosynthesis, breakdown of carbohydrates, protein synthesis and disease resistance. Most importantly, it can activate at least 80 enzymes that regulate the rates of major plant growth reactions. The aforementioned activities should all occur in-season, but what can be done to ensure a crop has the proper levels of K to carry out these functions? And should the applications be made in the fall or spring?


Fall Applied Nitrogen in the Corn Belt

Risks associated with fall nitrogen (N) applications fit into four categories: logistical, agronomic, environmental and economic, the last of which currently ties very closely to the others and will be discussed in conjunction with them.
