Removal of 10 elements by vegetables and by alfalfa



Removal of 10 elements by vegetables and by alfalfa



Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science 103(6): 809-812



Peas (Pisum sativum L.), table beets (Beta vulgaris L.), cabbage (Brassica oleracea L. capitata group), snap beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), sweet corn (Zea mays L.) and alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) were grown at 4 rates of concentrated superphosphate (CSP) and 4 rates of KCl fertilizers in a Honeoye fine sandy loam soil. Removal of P, K, Ca, Mg, Na, S, Cl, Zn, Mn and Fe by each crop was determined. CSP increased the removal of P. KCl increased the removal of K and Cl. Table beet plants removed more elements by wt and by equivalences of cations per hectare than any other vegetable crop. Two years of alfalfa hay removed more elements per hectare than 5 yr of the harvested portions of the 5 vegetable crops. Vegetative structure of the crops had wider ranges than the reproductive structures in concentrations of P due to CSP fertilizer treatments and especially wide ranges of K and Cl due to the KCl fertilizer treatments.
