Synopsis

Synopsis

In greenhouse trials, significant increases in yield and K absorption of alfalfa and bromegrass were obtained as applied K increased. Yield response to fertilizer K was less marked with soil containing more available soil K. Total production of bromegrass was half that of alfalfa, but the quantities of K removed were about equal. The change in several extractable fractions of soil K was directly related to the root distribution pattern of the forage.
