Potassium (K) is one of the three primary crop nutrients. Having an ample amount of potassium is critical to plant health and development. However, it is also important to consider the ratio of potassium ions in the soil, in relation to the other cations measured on a base saturation test. Understanding K's role in that base saturation analysis is a significant step in keeping soil in overall balance. Join Brian and Stephanie with this week's Back 2 Basics video on potassium.

When your soil base saturation gets out of balance, there are numerous amendments you can add to your soil to correct that imbalance. Join Stephanie and Brian in this short video where they take a look at some of the options available to bring your base saturation to optimal levels.
Calcium & Magnesium
Calcium (Ca) and Magnesium (Mg) are two of the most important factors in determining the structure and mobility of nutrients in your soil. If these two cations get out of balance, they can dramatically affect crop productivity. Join Stephanie and Brian in this short video where they discuss each ...
Sodium & Hydrogen
Sodium (Na) and Hydrogen (H) are two of the five cations that make up soil Base Saturation. The ratio of these cations is an indicator of the overall balance of your soil. In the latest Back 2 Basics video, Brian and Stephanie take a closer look at these two nutrients and their effect on balancin...
