Water soluble phosphorous is the best for citrus fertilization. Phosphorous moves very slowly into the soil. As already pointed out, a pre-planting application is needed for deep penetration into the soil. Potassium moves quicker than phosphorus, but not as quick as nitrogen. It is captured by the exchange complex of soil. Soil texture affects its mobility. In some soils potassium infiltration is very slow. Overdosage of potassium discourages magnesium absorption. Potassium sulphate is the most appropriate source for potassium fertilization, its acid reaction may not suit some acid soils.

Deepness of the root depends on the rootstock as well as on the soil. In sandy soils, the root system can penetrate down to 5 or 6 m , while in clay soil shallow root systems prevail. The existence of a taproot produces trees with a more erect and columnar aspect. The total length of the root system can be 30 km, that means a not much developed root system. The colour of the roots varies from yellow to olive brown. The cross section of the horizontal roots is epitrophic (broader in the upper part, close to the soil surface) in mandarins and sweet oranges and hypotrophic (broader in the lower part, far from the soil surface) in lemons.
