Potash (KCl) for canaryseed can be broadcast

Canaryseed producers are advised that they can broadcast potash (KCl) on the soil surface before or after seeding if side banding is not feasible. Recent research by Bill May of AAFC at Indian Head shows broadcast applications are effective. Chloride is mobile in the soil, similar to nitrogen and placement in the seed row is not required or recommended. May’s work over many years shows that chloride often generates a yield response in canaryseed.
