Synopsis

Synopsis

Potassium applications increased yield of seed cotton, size of bolls, and fiber micronaire values, but decreased lint percentage. K content of plants increased in proportion to .rate of K applied. Old leaves plus petioles gave the best indication of the K status of the plant. Fiber quality was best at lower rates of K.
