- Tobacco leaf proteins are well balanced, containing high levels of essential amino acids.
Proper nutrition of tobacco is prerequisite to achieving high yields of cured leaf possessing desired marketing characteristics. The maintenance of a desirable nutrient environment, including potassium (K), is one of the most critical factors in crop management.
Tobacco is a high‐value, labor intensive crop with high production costs. This chapter reviews the aspects of K nutrition involved in the production of high yields of useful tobacco. The amount of K often exceeds that required for maximum yields but is applied on the basis of improving leaf and smoking quality.
Potassium sulfate is the recommended source of K on tobacco, although differences in response to source generally can be attributed to the accompanying anion. The amount of K required for maximum yields of tobacco varies with soil test level of K, soil types, and other factors. High concentrations of K+ in cured leaves have been shown to improve several quality indices.
