Potassium Response and Fertiliser Application Economics in Oilseeds and Pulses in India

A review of the published literature showed variable K response in oilseeds and pulses across India. Economic calculations, using current prices of crop commodities and potash fertiliser, revealed significant return on investment to fertiliser K application in these crops. An approach based on yield response to K fertiliser application has been proposed to improve the yield of oilseeds and pulses and maintain K fertility levels of soils.
