dc.description.abstract Note: See the PDF Version Coconut is a perennial crop. Due to prolonged coconut cultivation, essential nutrients may get rapid depletion from the soil. Potassium and magnesium deficiency symptoms are common in coconut plantations than other major nutrients deficiency symptoms (Liyanage, 1999). Unavailability may be due to various factors. Antagonism of potassium and magnesium in the soil is one of the problems of balancing potassium and magnesium in the coconut cultivation. Muriate of potash can be used as the potassium source. Kieserite fertilizer is applied to overcome severe magnesium deficiencies in coconut plantations. Moreover, there is a time separation at least three months in between muriate of potash and kieserite application. However, no any significant impact on the production from this practice has been found. Therefore, this study was planned to study the interaction between potassium and magnesium doing simultaneous applications. The study was conducted as a pot experiment using an indicator plant.. en_US
