We conducted a field experiment in soybean with different levels of K application to elucidate the comparative dynamics of Cs and K. The inventory of K in the shoots increased substantially from the fifth trifoliate stage to the full seed stage, and as the absorption of K increased, so too did the absorption of Cs. Overall, the effect of K application was much greater in terms of Cs dynamics than K dynamics or biomass production. Read More
