Potassium (K) is an essential nutrient for plant growth, but it generally receives less attention than nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) in many crop production systems. Many regions of the United States and all of the Canadian provinces remove more K

fertilizers for container-crop production, alternative fertilizers made from biorenewable, nonsynthetic sources have been explored. Some sources include fish emulsions, liquid soybean-based fertilizer, corn gluten meal, millorganite, and, more recently, soy

CE food crop production has fluctuated in productivity and evolved in technology over history. For example, early U.S. CE food production generally took place in glasshouses heated by “hot beds” of manure ( Dalrymple, 1973 ), whereas currently food
