Effect of Foliar-applied Monopotassium Phosphate on High Yield Canola and Wheat Grown in Southern Manitoba

Assess foliar application of mono potassium phosphate (MKP) to enhance phosphorus nutrition of wheat.

IPNI-2001-CAN-MB15

Foliar application of MKP can enhance phosphorus nutrition of wheat, reduce disease i horticultural crops and enhance the stress tolerance of wheat. Most soils in the Prairie region of Canada are P-deficient for crop production and require P fertilization for optimum yields of crops. However, the efficiency of P uptake from soil-applied P fertilizer may be poor during periods when the topsoil is cold or dry and diffusion of P is limited. Read more

Interpretive Summary

2001

Effect of Foliar-Applied Monopotassium Phosphate on High Yielding Canola and Wheat Grown in Southern Manitoba, 2001 Most soils in the prairie region of Canada are phosphorus (P) deficient for crop production and require P fertilization for optimum crop yields. However, the efficiency of P uptake from soil-applied P fertilizer may be poor during periods when the topsoil is cold or dry and diffusion of P is limited, causing a transient deficiency of P.
