Leaf symptoms of K deficiency in grapes were described as early as 1894, but this nutritional disorder was not identified in deciduous fruits until 1928. It is the most common nutritional problem of grapes and all other deciduous fruits require K fertilization under certain soil conditions. Potassium deficiency is frequent on light, sandy soils low in K, on heavy soils with a high fixing power, and on calcareous soils. On susceptible soils, it is often associated with heavy production.
