Drought and soil salinity influence response of cereals to potassium and sulfur fertilization

Q Ma, R Bell, C Scanlan, G Sarre, R Brennan.

Wheat required more K under drought than non-drought conditions, and the effectiveness of K fertilization was improved by early application.
In moderately saline, low K soil, K input improved growth and yield of barley—a response partially attributed to the plant’s ability to tolerate the substitution of Na for K.
