Title : The effect of potassium on the content of soluble sugars in barley


The key hypothesis of the study was that the delivery of different doses of potassium may affect the drought resistance of plants. We set up a field and greenhouse experiment and studied the effect of different doses of potassium on the content of soluble sugars in above ground parts of the plant. The test was carried out on several varieties of spring barley, which differed in their resistance to drought. The results indicate that varying levels of potassium fertilization have a significant effect on the content of soluble sugars and can therefore affect the water stress resistance of plants
