Effects of Sulfate of Potash on Green Tea (Part 2)



Green tea consumption has increased over the last decade. A balanced plant nutrition ensures green leaf quality and high biomass production. A set of experiments were conducted to determine the effects of potassium (K) sources and rates on green tea biomass production and leaf quality.






Fertilizing Rice with Sulfate of Potash



Rice is the most consumed cereal in the world. Nowadays, high crop intensification has caused rapid depletion of soil potassium (K), which may result in more frequent K deficiencies. A previous study showed that addition of K, as sulfate of potash (SOP), could improve rice yield in comparison to another K source.






Nitrogen and Potassium Interactions in Plant Nutrition



Nitrogen (N) and potassium (K) are key macronutrients for crop production. Research shows that proper K nutrition increases N use efficiency by improving N absorption and conversion to amino acids and proteins in plant metabolism. The net results are higher yields, quality, and N utilization. Thus, using the right K source, such as sulfate of potash (SOP) may result on larger net returns.
