Nutrient Release, Plant Nutrition, and Potassium Leaching from Polymer-Coated Fertilizer

Henrique Bley, Clesio Gianello, Lenio da Silva Santos, Lisiane Priscila Roldão Selau


ABSTRACT The increase in food consumption and limitations in food production areas requires improved fertilizer efficiency. Slow- or controlled-release fertilizers are an alternative for synchronizing nutrient availability with the plant demands, reducing losses to the environment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of polymer-coated KCl compared with conventional KCl. The products were incubated in soil under controlled conditions to evaluate the time required for nutrient release. A greenhouse experiment was performed with corn plants in pots […]
