Potassium supplied by precipitation and its possible role in forest nutrition.
Keywords: Potassium, precipitation, mineral deficiency, foliar deficiency symptoms, soil nutrients.
AbstractPublished data on potassium content of precipitation for eight Irish meteorological stations over a period of seven years were processed to give the quantities supplied. The overall distribution is concave, with lowest values in the central area and the highest on the west and northwest coasts. The average quantity supplied ranged from 1.6 to 11.7 kg K/ha per annum. It is suggested that this supply may be important in soils of low K supplying power.
