Potassium (K) fertilization is important for high yields in forage crops such as alfalfa. While K fertilizer has historically been cheap compared to the other major macronutrients, supplying removal rates to alfalfa annually can result in a significant expense to alfalfa producers. Research from the University of Minnesota clarifies when it makes sense to apply K, when it doesn't, and what factors to keep in mind.
Applying manure before seeding alfalfa may seem counterproductive since alfalfa isn't likely to benefit from any nitrogen, but manure may also have large amounts of macro and micronutrients the crop needs, says University of Nebraska Extension.
