A field experiment was conducted in order to secure the basic information on the rational application of nitrogen and potassium for autumn growing Chinese cabbage (Brassica campastris ssp. pekinensis, var.; Miho 70 days). The results of the experiment are summarized as follows: 1. Potassium effect was observed where nitrogen applied either less than 15kg N/10a and heavy dose of 25kg N/10a. No potassium effect was observed where 20kg N/10a applied. In the case of 25kg N/10a, potassium effect was observed only in total weight but failed yield marketable product weighing over 1 kilogram per cabbage. 2. Nitrogen application, in general, tends to lower the soil pH and it is particularly true when heavy dose of over 20kg N/10a is applied. As a result, Chinese cabbage has increasingly removed soil born potassium and reduced exchangeable potassium content of the soil. 3. Oven dried cabbage which received 25kg N/10a plus potassium showed a low concentration of calcium and this phenomena seems to be attributable to the acidification of soils and it further caused failure in producing cabbages of marketing value.
