Nuts are rich in potassium, phosphorus and magnesium, making them an important source of nutrition. Key crops include almonds, pistachios, cashews, chestnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, and walnuts.
A large variation in yield can be observed for each species. This is due to different cropping practices, in particular, fertilization. The common denominator across the various nut crops is the need to achieve balanced fertilization. Despite their differences, all of these nut crops have a high requirement for potassium relative to nitrogen and phosphorus. A balanced fertilization program is a prerequisite to ensure healthy root growth and full development of the plant.
