23 Aug 2018Potassium fertilization is critical to sunflower

Potassium (K) nutrition plays an especially important role for sunflower crops. The crop is very sensitive to soil K deficiency, and the lack of K often results in both low seed yields and oil concent ...

09 Dec 2014Soil potassium supply capacity and relation with cotton yield and fiber quality in main cotton areas in North China

In order to realize soil potassium status and supply capacity as well as their relation with cotton yield and quality in the main cotton areas in North China, surface soil (0-20 cm), cotton plant and ...

13 Oct 20144R Nutrient Stewardship for Sunflower Crops in Northwest China

Nutrient imbalance following over- and under-application of some nutrients has restricted sunflower production in Northwest China. A review of research demonstrates how the 4R Nutrient Stewardship app ...

13 Oct 20144R Nutrient Management Practices for Potato Production in China

In China, potato yields have been restricted by low and unbalanced nutrient input. A key measure to better tuber yield, quality, and improved nutrient use efficiency will be successful implementation ...

09 Oct 2012Crop Yield and Soil Fertility as Influenced by Nutrient Management in Rainfed Inner Mongolia

Traditional nutrient management within the rainfed regions of Inner Mongolia usually results in poor crop productivity. In this study, six successive crop seasons found N, P, and K fertilizer to be re ...

09 Oct 2012Response of potato to fertilizer application and nutrient use efficiency in Inner Mongolia

Inner Mongolia autonomous region (IMAR) is one of the major potato production area in China. The planted area of potato in IMAR is now about 760,000 ha and the total production is 9.55 million tons. T ...

09 Oct 2012Maize Response to Balanced Fertilizer Application in Northwest China

On-farm trials in NW China showed that the addition of potassium to N and P fertilizers used for maize resulted in an average increase of 1207 kg/ha more yield and USD 300/ha more income than the farm ...
