According to agricultural research, it has been proven that potash with nitrogen and phosphorus is also very important in crop supplements.
The importance of balanced fertilizer use is the same for both irrigated and non-irrigated conditions.
By the use of potash, there is more tillering in the green wheat plant, which produces more earrings.
At the time of formation of earrings and grains, when full dose of potash is given, more grains are formed and the yield is also higher.
Potash provides full benefits from chemical fertilizers containing nitrogen and phosphorus and prevents damage from excess nitrogen.
By using potash, wheat has more protein and carbohydrate content.
With the help of potash, many substances are circulated in the plants, which is very important for plant growth.
Potash helps in the development of roots, making them become taller, stronger and healthier. Due to the roots being dense and elongated, the plants can take water and nutrients from the ground well and stand firm.
Potash strengthens the stems of wheat plants and thus the plant do not fall down.
Potash strengthens plants and gives them strength to fight with the harmful insects and diseases.
Potash regulates water use in plants, allowing the plant to withstand heat, drought and frost. Potash is very beneficial for rainfed farming.
Way to apply fertilizer -
Potash should be given in right quantity at the right time to the crop.
Give complete amount of potash & phosphorus and one third of nitrogen at the time of sowing.
Potash can be applied with the help of drill or by hand.
If there are signs of deficiency of potash in the standing crop, then top dressing at the rate of about 15 kg of potash (25 kg murate of potash) per acre.
