Table 1 shows the nutrient removal (kg) by the harvested plant organ, expressed in 1.000 kg yield, and the quantity of KNO3 needed to replenish the amount of K that is removed by the harvested plant organ. In addition, the amount of N that is replenished with this quantity of KNO3 and the proportion of the total quantity of N that will be removed by the harvested plant organ are presented.


Table 1. Nutrient removal (kg) by the harvested plant organ, expressed in 1.000 kg yield, and the quantity of KNO3 (13,5 % N and 46,0% K2O) needed to replenish the amount of K that is removed by the harvested plant organ, the amount of N that is replenished with this quantity of KNO3, and the proportion of the total quantity of N that will be removed by the harvested plant organ.
