Haifa fertilizers help the Australian growers produce top strawberries | December 2011

The fertilizers dissolve extremely well and pose no problems through growers' pumps and irrigation systems. Also read how the Multicote fertilizer helped growers to input savings, as well as production and operational benefits. And: Nutrigation of crops via irrigation machines

Years of soil improvement boosts Calavos capsicums | March 2013

The Queensland capsicum grower discovered the benefits of Haifa's fertilizers: the high efficiency and solubility, reduction in electricity consumption and more

Quality input equals quality output for Childers leafy greens grower | April 2013

Haifa products are the main fertilizers used by Brian Ellis, a Queensland grower, for his own lettuce growing and for the Hydromix Australia blends.

 

New low sodium, chloride fertilizers on their way | May 2014

IFAS Standardized Fertilization Recommendations for Vegetable Crops | George J. Hochmuth and Edward A. Hanlon

This publication presents in abbreviated form the fertilization recommendations for vegetable crops based on soil tests performed by the IFAS Extension Soil Testing Laboratory (ESTL). It contains the basic information from which ESTL soil-test reports and fertilization recommendations are generated.

North Dakota Fertilizer Recommendation Tables and Equations | D.W. Franzen

soil test recommendation tables based on field research data obtained in North Dakota, South Dakota, western Minnesota and the Canadian Prairie Provinces.

Potassium Fertilization of Cotton | A. Ozzie Abaye; Extension Agronomist, Alternative Crops, Virginia Tech

Potassium (K) is an essential nutrient for normal plant growth and development, which plays a particularly important role in fiber development. Potassium defi¬ciency results in decreased fiber quality and lowered yields. If K is limited during active fiber growth, there is a reduction in the turgor pressure of the fiber result¬ing in less cell elongation and shorter fibers at maturity.

Evaluation of Controlled- release Fertilizers for Young Citrus Trees | Mongi Zekri and Robert C.J. Koo

Controlled-release sources of N and K were compared with soluble sources on young orange trees.The effects of these fertilizers on leaf mineral concentration, soil chemical analysis, and tree growth were evaluated for 3 years. Soluble fertilizers were generally more readily available but had shorter residual effects on leaves and soil than controlled-release fertilizers.

Potassium fertilization for pineapple: Effects on plant growth and fruit yield | Luiz Antonio Junqueira Teixeira, José Antonio Quaggio, Heitor Cantarella, Estêvão Vicari Mellis

A field experiment with pineapple was carried in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, with the objective of investigating the effects of rates and sources of potassium fertilizer on plant growth and fruit yield. Plant growth and fruit yield were evaluated. Biomass accumulation of pineapple plants was impaired by chlorine added with potassium chloride.

Managing potassium for crop production

A corn crop takes up nearly as much potassium (K) as it does nitrogen (N), yet management of each nutrient is entirely different. Whereas harvesting 125 bushels of corn grain per acre removes only 35 lbs of potash (K2O), harvesting 21 tons of silage per acre carries away 160 lbs of K2O; and the voracious appetite of a 5-ton per-acre alfalfa crop takes 230 lbs of K2O per acre from a field.
