Effects of Liming on the Response of Maize to Potassium in Jiquipilas

The objective of the study was to determine the influence of liming in the response of maize to K supplied by two sources and at four rates.

IPNI-2013-MEX-55

The objective of this study was to determine the influence of liming on the response of maize to K added as two fertilizer sources and at four application rates. The study was conducted in a farmers field in Jiquipilas, Chiapas. The field had a sandy loam soil with pH 5. 2, 2. 3% organic matter, 48 ppm Bray-1 P, 72 ppm available K, 411 ppm Ca, 31 ppm Mg, 17 ppm Na, 0. 3 ppm Zn, 22 ppm Mn, 0. 3 ppm Cu, and 0,2 ppm B.
