We’ve heard a lot of questions about cation exchange capacity, base saturation and what that means for N and K applications. Dan Kaiser, Carl Rosen, Brad Carlson and Fabian Fernandez talk about what they’re hearing on this episode of the podcast.

We cover:

  • What cation exchange capacity (CEC) is
  • How it’s measured
  • Why it’s important
  • The link between CEC and the amount of nitrogen or potassium a soil can hold
  • The link between base saturation and CEC
