Mapping Potassium Budgets Across Different States of India

Potassium input-output balances in different states of India were estimated and mapped using the IPNI NuGIS approach. Results showed negative K balances in most of the states suggesting deficit K application as compared to crop K uptake. Deficit application of K contributes to nutrient mining from soil, results in the depletion of soil fertility, and may significantly limit future crop yields.
