Active Ingredient: Potassium chloride
Crops: silage, potatoes, and sugar beets. Sugarcane, fruit trees, vegetables, and other field crops. Description:
Readily dissolves in water and used for direct application to the soil.
On application to soil, it ionizes to dissociate into K & Cl ions. K gets attached or adsorbed on the soil complex. As such, though MOP is readily soluble in water, it is not leached.
High concentration of nutrients makes packing, storage and transport costs per unit cost of nutrient very low.
This fertiliser aids in the formulation of vegetative matter and root production.
MOP should not be used on salt sensitive crops, where soil salt levels are high or increasing, or where irrigation water has high salt levels.
Potassium stimulates the growth of strong stems and gives the plant some disease resistance by promoting thickness of the outer cell walls.
