Soil Status and Crop Response to Potassium Application in Jharkhand

2012. 8 p. English. Edited by Sarkar, A.K., R. Kumar, and S. Karmakar.

The geographical area of the State of Jharkhand is 7.9 million ha, out of which net sown area is 2.4 million ha. At present Jharkhand state is producing 3.6 million tones of vegetables. Jharkhand has the potential for higher production of vegetable crops by adoption of improved management practices and soil health care. Among the major plant nutrients (NPK), potassium requirement in vegetables is fairly high as compared to the food grains, and lack of K brings about a drastic change in production quality as well as shelf life.
