Potassium Chloride

Potassium Chloride is the most concentrated form of fine or granular potassium and typically the most cost-effective Potash fertiliser. It is used in dry or liquid application. Potash is the common name given to a group of minerals containing potassium that are typically used in agriculture to aid plant growth. The most common type of potash is potassium chloride (KCL). KCL is also known as muriate of potash (MOP) or sylvite, a naturally occurring mineral. Potassium is vital to many important plant processes, including photosynthesis, and water and nutrient uptake. It is essential in maintaining overall crop quality. To ensure healthy and nutritious plant growth, an adequate supply of potassium must be maintained in the soil. Potash can be applied directly to the soil in the same form it is delivered to the customer—often in granular pieces. These granules can be applied by hand or with various kinds of farm equipment. Potassium stimulates the growth of strong stems and gives the plant some disease resistance by promoting thickness of the outer cell walls. Adequate potassium can reduce moisture loss from growing plants, thereby providing some drought resistance. Potassium improves the colour, flavour, and storing quality of fruit and vegetables.
