The Relationship of Water Soluble and Exchangeable Potassium to Yield and Potassium Uptake by Ladino Clover1

An attempt was made to evaluate in a relative way the K in the soil solution as a measure of the immediately available potassium in the soil. When the K content of Ladino clover was below the critical level, the water soluble potassium, a measure of the K in the soil solution, was better correlated with yield than was exchangeable K. The water soluble potassium also gave a better correlation with the potassium absorbed by plants in a short period of time. A percolation procedure which consisted of leaching a soil with a large volume of a low electrolyte extractant was a better measure of the K supplying power of a soil than the initial exchangeable level of potassium.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
