Question: I have been reading several Agweb blogs on fertilizer recommendations for corn versus soybeans. I was wondering if the potash we put out in 2010 on soybeans was really doing any good, or if it was just as well to put out a little more to the corn land the previous year since we have a corn-soybean-corn rotation? If the beans don't really benefit from applied potassium (K), then what are my benefits to applying K before I plant soybeans if the soil levels are adequate? Would K be available if I applied it to the bean land in the fall of the previous year after we cut the corn?
