Synopsis

Synopsis

High rates of chloride had little effect on the percentage of other elements in corn leaf tissue in field experiments, whereas total absorption of phosphorus, nitrogen, and magnesium was affected in pot experiments. Stalk rot incidence was decreased with increased potassium chloride applications but not with increased potassium sulfate and potassium metaphosphate applications.
