Potassium nutrition in oil palm: The potential of metabolomics as a tool for precision agriculture

Abstract : Oil palm is the first oil-producing crop globally, representing nearly 20 million ha. In the recent past, oil palm cultivation has been controversial not only because of land utilisation at the expense of primary tropical forests or health concerns associated with palm oil, but also pollution caused by fertilization (including CO2 produced to synthesise fertilizers). Oil palm fields are heavily fertilized with potassium (K), and thus finding better, more parsimonious methods to monitor K nutrition is more im-portant than ever. Here, we suggest that metabolomics and subsequent machine learning of metabolic signatures represent a promising tool to probe K requirements, opening avenues for precision agriculture in oil palm industry.
