Abstract

The investigation was carried out in the vineyards of "Radmilovac" on the Faculty of Agriculture experimental station, with cv. Sauvignon blanc grafted to the rootstock Berlandieri x Riparia Kober 5BB. The aim of this research was to determine the effects of potassium fertilizer application on the Ca:Mg and K:Mg ratio in soil and vines organs. In this experiment the following treatments were used: control (without fertilization) and treatments with 50, 100 and 150 kg K2O/ha 50% KCl potassium fertilizer. The soil type was eutric cambisol. Treated soil was subjected to the detail agrochemical soil analysis, while the soil samples was collected from the depth of 0-30, 30-60, 60-90 and 90-120 cm. Leaves for analysis were collected in august and shoots after pruning. Potassium and magnesium analysis has been by AAS. The level of available potassium was (11,95-14,15 mg/100g of soil), magnesium (20,2-23,7 mg/100 g of soil) and calcium (354-464 mg/100 g of soil). During the first year, Ca:Mg ratio was 5,8-14,4:1, in the second year 5,4-18,5:1 and at third year 4,9-25,2:1. The K:Mg ratio ranged from 0,08-0,21:1 in the first, 0,13-0,29:1 in the second and 0,11-0,21:1 in the third year of study. The Ca:Mg and K:Mg ratio were mostly influenced by 100 and 150 kg K2O/ha potassium doses. The K:Mg ratio in the leaves and shoots did not change under influence of different potassium fertilizer doses, so that the antagonism between these two elements was not manifested.
