In this module, important concepts of potassium management in agricultural systems for profitable crop production will be discussed.
Phosphorus is taken up by plant roots from the water in the soil, the soil solution. A deficiency of phosphorus affects not only plant growth and development and crop yield, but also the quality of the fruit and the formation of seeds. Deficiency can also delay the ripening of crops; which can set back the harvest, risking the quality of the produce.
